Although cancer is expected to become more serious in middle- and low-income countries, it has not attracted sufficient global attention, and those countries cannot afford and benefit from new technologies. The previous 19 APCC meetings, held in various Asian countries, provided a podium for presentation of technical papers, promoted cancer science and established good relationships. Future APCC goals should be to achieve visible improvements in cancer medicine and solve Asian scientific problems. During the 20th APCC in Tsukuba, Japan, it is focused on Asian consensus statements produced by Working Groups for each organ cancer showing different morbidity and mortality between the Asia-Pacific and Western regions. Each Working Group spent a year preparing for this conference by analyzing contributing factor(s) and writing a consensus statement of a strategy for improving morbidity and mortality.
