Business

Berlin, Germany - It is Europe’s foremost platform for political, economic, cultural and science dialogue and exchange with the partner countries in the Asia-Pacific- Region.

The 6th Asia-Pacific Weeks take place from September 10 to 23, 2007 and will be dedicated to the motto:
„Asia-Pacific: Changing the World“.

The biannual event of the Asia-Pacific- Weeks (APW) is an initiative of the Governing Mayor of Berlin. It is Europe’s foremost platform for political, economic, cultural and science dialogue and exchange with the partner countries in the Asia-Pacific- Region. It promotes the slogan on Berlin as “Gateway to Asia”.
The Asia-Pacific Forum Berlin, strategic advisor of the APW, is the initiator and coordinator of the Business and Science Programme. It will focus on innovative and sustainable technology and knowhow exchange for Urban Infrastructure and on Creative Industries. Potentials of cooperation between major cities and mega-cities will be assessed in the fields of Transport and Mobility, City Planning, Architecture, Energy, Water, Waste Management, ICT, Life Sciences and more, as well as at the crossover of culture and business in Design, Fashion, Film, Music and New Media.

For responding to the actual interest and needs of our Asian partners and to promote technological cooperation in state-of-theart technology and know-how exchange based on mutual partnership relevant for our common future, we assessed and analysed the National Innovation Systems (NIS) of major Asian countries and selected the most urgent topics.
