From November 3 to 5, German trade and industry directed its attention towards the world’s fastest growing
economic region: Asia-Pacific. Current political and economic trends were on the agenda of the 15th Asia-
Pacific Conference of German Business in Hong Kong.
With over 1,000 participants and top-level speakers
from 16 different countries, the APK once again fulfilled the role it has had for 30 years of being a trend
scout and the most important forum for economic and political decision makers from Asia and Germany.
The APK is an event of the Asia-Pacific Committee of German Business (APA), the AHKs in the Asia-Pacific
region, and the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, and it is carried out by the local AHK in
each conference’s host country.
