PCS President, I am proud to welcome you to the Pakistans largest meeting in the respiratory field. The members of the Scientific committee, together with all our team, are working hard to bring you a programme that addresses the needs of all respiratory professionals, from scientists to clinicians and allied health professionals. I am confident that this international conference 2018 will stimulate debate and shed new light on advances in the respiratory field. Alongside the programme, the Conference will provide the perfect opportunity for our members and other delegates to network with peers from across the country as well as with International speakers. Knowledge is deepened when it is shared and by meeting together, discussing experiences and debating varying approaches to key topics, we can work towards a better future for respiratory health. As we all know that any conference is not successful without the participation of individuals, we will strongly urge you to send research abstract and make plan to attend Chest conference 2018. Beside the learning platform, ample opportunities will be offered for entertainment and sightseeing as the venue of this conference is Serena Islamabad. I look forward to welcoming you to Islamabad for the most exciting event in the respiratory calendar.
