Prof. Jie He

Executive President


November 9, 2019



Ladies and Gentlemen, Distinguished Guests and Dear Colleagues from China and  all over the world, Good evening!


This meeting is closing with a great success.  As the executive president of this congress, on behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 15th OESO World Congress for Esophageal Diseases, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to all of you for your attendance and academic contribution to this conference,  which make this conference highly fruitful and successful.


We, Chinese colleagues, have been looking forward to meeting and exchanging with the experts from different countries around the world, and this dream comes true today!

And I hope we will have more cooperation with OESO in the future.


It is the first time that OESO holds its world congress in an Asian country.

This conference mainly focused on the “Global Perspectives and Novel Technologies for Diseases of the Esophagus”. More than 300 abstracts including video from all over the world were submitted to the conference, and 433 experts and scholars spoke at the congress.

4221 colleagues from China and all over the world registered to attend the OESO congress. We first set a Sino-Japanese-Korean Symposium and a multimodality meeting to debate and share our experience in treatment of esophageal cancer among the experts.


Even though the past 3 days were too short, all attendees cherished this great opportunity to enjoy this academic feast for esophageal diseases. Though we have achieved great progress in the clinical management and basic research on esophageal diseases, the road ahead of us is still long: let us join hands to face and deal together with the challenge of esophageal diseases in the future.


Beijing is a beautiful capital city with thousand years of history, it has rich cultural and architectural heritage. Its convenient air and ground transportation will take you to any scenic spots that you wish to visit in Beijing and other places in China after the conference. We have prepared a special and grand Gala Dinner on the night of 9th, and I hope you can enjoy delicious Chinese cuisine and beautiful Chinese folk song and dance as well as Beijing operas after the Closing Ceremony of this congress.


Finally, I wish you a pleasant stay in China.


Thank you!
