TechInPacific – The Australian APEC Study Centre at RMIT University shows its support on the APEC’s mission and goals. The support is seen through its programs, including providing executive training, thought leadership, and policy advice. The purpose of these programs is to reinforce regional economic integration and prosperity in Asia and the Pacific.
The Study Centre has an excellent record in organizing and managing tailored training programs for many institutions, including government, business, and academic institutions. Moreover, it also has a high consideration on conducting applied research and cultivating knowledge into practical resources that help policymakers and regulators within Asia and the Pacific. The main focuses of the Study Centre are regional economic integration, geopolitics, finance and infrastructure development and urban futures.
The Study Centre also helps to provide research outputs in government, business, and academicians to drive sustainable economic growth and development in the area. According to the third pillar of the Study Centre’s work, it provides direct support for the Australian members of the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC), the APEC’s platform that provides advisory in the process of business policymaking.
Through the support to ABAC members and the wider business community, The Study Centre expects the platform is able to provide advice to the APEC Economic Leaders as its priority and concern about the business community across the region.
