Berlin | Asia-Pacific Weeks 2013


The 9th Asia-Pacific Weeks Berlin in 2013 will focus on Smart Cities. Metropolises will continue to increase in global importance. The challenges in store for cities in the 21st century demand smart and creative solutions – in Berlin as well as in the growing megacities of Asia.

Asia Pacific Weeks Berlin runs 5 -14 June 2013

Asia-Pacific is the world’s largest economic region with the highest growth rates. Economic integration, the transfer of knowledge and cultural exchange will play key roles in the ongoing development of Asia and Europe.

Since 1997, the Asia-Pacific Weeks Berlin have been providing a forum for major topics in business and politics, science and research, and also culture and society.

The APW 2013 are focusing on Smart Cities and addressing the challenges facing Berlin and the growing metropolises of Asia. The goal is to achieve sustainable economic and social urban development that offers solutions for population growth and environmental pressures. Innovative concepts are needed not only for digital infrastructure, mobility, energy and water supply, but also for education, creative freedom and political participation.
