It is not merely a technical discipline but a cornerstone upon which countless industries, innovations, and societal functions rely. We are professionals dedicated to the pursuit of reliable measurements, and we understand the profound impact that metrology has on our daily lives.

As we convene for the APMP Midyear Meetings in the scenic province of Bohol, Philippines, it is my privilege to extend a heartfelt welcome to each of you.

Throughout these meetings, let us explore its intricacies, its challenges, and its boundless potential to drive progress. From the fundamental principles of measurement to the cutting-edge technologies shaping its future, there is much to discover and discuss.

Moreover, let us recognize the broader significance of our work. As we strive for progress, we must extend our support to developing nations in enhancing their measurement capabilities. By sharing guidance and access to resources, we can empower these countries to overcome challenges and embark on a path of progress.

I wish you all a fruitful and inspiring experience at the APMP Midyear Meeting. Together, let us embrace the spirit of collaboration and solidarity to shape a future where metrology continues to shine as a beacon of scientific excellence.
