Asian-Pacific City Summit


Asian-Pacific City Summit

The Asian-Pacific region is drawing global attention for its remarkable economic growth. This rapid economic expansion has, however, also aggravated urban problems associated with a massive influx of new residents. In response to this a social situation, the Asia-Pacific City Summit has been held every other year since1994, as a forum where leaders of Asian-Pacific region cities can get together and have exchanges of opinions in a candid manner.

The purpose of the Summit is to promote friendship and mutual cooperation in this region toward solution of urban problems and network-building for further development of Asian cities.

To realize the objectives of the summit, the Working Level Conference between those persons working at the front line of urban administration, has been held in the year following each summit, beginning in 1995.

The next Summit is scheduled to be held in Dalian City, China, in 2008.

The secretariat is situated in Fukuoka city, Japan.The Fukuoka Asian Urban Research Center is responsible for the secretariat.
