On behalf of the Scientific Committee of the Congress it is an honour to extend to You an invitation to a three-day scientific meeting to be organized in Budapest by the Ministry of Human Capacities of Hungary and the Central-Eastern European Breast Cancer Surgical Consortium.

The primary objective of the health political and scientific conference is to strengthen cooperation between the participating 28 countries in the field of oncology, to promote state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in oncological care, to find future-oriented solutions tailored to the particularities of our respective regions, and to initiate specific cooperation projects in the field of oncology aimed at improving health situation in our countries. Upon concluding the discussions, the Government of Hungary plans to adopt a declaration spelling out the proposals and recommendations set forth by the participants.

We are delighted to communicate that, under the aegis of this event, the Minister of Human Capacities of Hungary, Prof. Dr. Miklós Kásler is planning to introduce the Central-Eastern European Academy of Oncology, to be established to promote cooperation in the fields of cancer prevention, treatment, and care.
