A National Center for APEC Executive Forum

ASNC is proud to join as a co-sponsor with the National Center for APEC, members of the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) and APEC Senior Officials visiting San Francisco from the 21 APEC Economies for an Executive Forum: Connecting the Asia-Pacific: Innovation, Disruption and Growth, in San Francisco.

The Executive Forum will focus on the role that innovation and disruptive technologies can play in driving economic growth in Asia-Pacific markets. Participants will discuss the potential for new technologies to address society’s epic challenges: climate change, health, and aging populations. It will also discuss implications for policymakers and traditional industries in light of the Internet of Things; what is needed to foster entrepreneurial innovation and creative disruption; and the role that trade agreements can play in promoting innovation and technological advances throughout the region.

Participants will include senior-level government and business representatives from 21 Pacific Rim economies, including Japan, China, Mexico, Peru, Indonesia and Australia, as well as thought leaders, media figures and representatives of U.S. corporations, large and small, with an interest in Asia-Pacific markets.
