Dear colleagues,
Over the past 10 years, Vietnam Association of Gastroenterology (VNAGE), Vietnam Federation for Digestive Endoscopy (VFDE) and Korean Society of Gastroenterology (KSGE) have had many scientific exchanges between the two sides. On the Korean side, KSGE sponsored many young Vietnamese doctors to attend conferences on gastrointestinal endoscopy in Korea. Conference were very practical, updating a lot of new knowledge in endoscopic diagnosis and treatment. On the Vietnamese side, VNAGE/VFDE also invited many Korean experts to report in Vietnam at the Annual Conference on Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.
In order to improve the relationship between the two sides, on January 20, 2021, VNAGE/VFDE and KSGE had a memorandum of understanding (MOU) acknowledging Clinical Endoscopy as an official journal of VNAGE/VFDE. With this MOU as momentum, KSGE, IDEN and VNAGE/VFDE will make best efforts to strengthen relationship and cooperate to contribute together to the advancement of gastroenterology and the field of gastrointestinal endoscopy.

We hope, CE will become a renowned, prestigious scientific journal which many people support and love.
Congratulations for this precious cooperation!

Best regards,
