Update on The 13th Asian-Pacific City Summit Special Edition

As we announced earlier this February, we were planning to hold the Summit in a hybrid format this coming October, inviting guests from each city to come to Fukuoka City.

However, the spread of COVID-19 continues to be unpredictable in Japan, and as a result, the easing of immigration restrictions into Japan has been postponed.
It is our top priority to ensure the safety and security of all participants, and in light of this situation, we have made the extremely difficult decision to postpone the APCS in its hybrid format to 2022.

Nevertheless, at this historic turning point into the new era, it is not desirable to have a period of no intercity cooperation, and so we have decided to hold a fully online Summit on 26 and 27 October 2021 as a Special Edition of the APCS, focusing on urban development during the COVID-19 pandemic.
