How it began
The Asia Pacific Cities Summit was founded in 1996 and is an initiative of the Brisbane City Council. It was established to foster city partnerships and to facilitate the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experience between local governments, technical experts and businesses within the Asia Pacific region.
It brings together Mayors, administrators, academics and business leaders to discuss issues of immediate and mutual interest to the region and to explore opportunities for business growth in the region.
The Summit focuses on cities as the catalysts to economic growth and is designed to actively help businesses in the region establish relationships that could lead to lucrative export and investment opportunities.
Previous Summits have been held in 1996 Brisbane; 1999 Brisbane; 2001 Seattle; 2003 Brisbane. Click here to read about past Summits (http://www.apcsummit.org/content/?id=224).
Each Summit attracts between 600-800 delegates including civic leaders from more than 50 Asia Pacific cities from countries such as China, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and the United States.
