Established by Fukuoka City in 1994, the Asian-Pacific City Summit (APCS) is a platform for international leaders. The Summit functions as an opportunity for city leaders from the Asia-Pacific region to gather under one roof to create cooperative relationships. It is an ideal chance to build and expand networks for further urban development by sharing best practices for solving urban issues and openly exchanging opinions.
