The ASC Consortium Conference is an annual conference hosted by ACS’s in the APEC Host Economy for that year.
PNG who will be hosting the 2018 APEC Summit will thus be hosting next years ASC Consortium Conference.
The annual conference provides an opportunity for academics and scholars from around the region to discuss their research and identify areas for collaboration.
ASCs are independent from APEC and their functions and funding arrangements are not uniform. This independence and flexibility ensures the integrity of the ASC process.
