It goes without any doubt that International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) annual
congress provides an excellent platform for the pharmacists and pharmaceutical
scientists to build global linkages and research collaborations with their contemporaries
from all over the world. For young pharmacists, the annual congress is a place to learn
the art and science of Pharmacy from the experts in the field.

There are two main objectives that I would like to achieve through upcoming 69th FIP
annual congress to be held in Istanbul, Turkey. First and the foremost is to discuss the
prospects of future research collaborations with other international pharmaceutical
scientists and second is to develop academic ties with other universities so that
necessary training programmes can be arranged in the area of Pharmacy
Practice/Clinical Pharmacy for lecturers and students. This will prepare the future
pharmacists of developing countries to take the responsibility of patient outcomes which
is in tandem with the main theme of 69th International Congress of FIP.

I would like to thank WPPF/FIP for honoring me with the travel grant to attend 69th
International Congress. I am really looking forward to meet you all in Istanbul.
