Dr. Abdulaziz AlRajhi, MD
President - WOC 2012

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to the participants of the World Ophthalmology Congress® 2012 (WOC 2012.)

This year is the first time such a prestigious international ophthalmology meeting will be hosted in the Middle East and Africa Region, and the Middle East Africa Council of Ophthalmology (MEACO), welcomes our ophthalmology colleagues from around the world.

The WOC 2012 will take place in Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The city is rapidly developing into a vibrant city: with extraordinary sky scrapers, glamorous shopping malls, top quality hotels, interesting museums, beautiful parks, and adventurous water and other sports.

The city has been converted into a great destination for business travelers: offering affordable transportations through taxis and public transport and hotel rates that will suit every budget. However, although this is a modern city it is very proud of its rich cultural heritage and this can be seen in the architecture, food and fashion.

I am confident that WOC 2012 will prove to be an enriching experience to all the participants and delegates with our aim to continue to provide the high quality scientific content that is expected from WOC with participation from all over the world.

Preparations are well underway to ensure you and your accompanying guests experience the very best of the well known Arabian hospitality. I encourage you to explore the unique social and cultural heritage of the UAE and wish you a great stay in amazing Abu Dhabi!

I look forward to welcoming you at the WOC 2012.
