It is co-chaired by the APA-Chairman, President and CEO of Siemens AG Roland Busch and the Vice Chancellor and Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action Robert Habeck. The 17th APK will take place in Singapore from 13–14 November 2022 and will welcome several hundred participants. The conference's objective is to provide a platform to deepen the dialogue on current economic developments in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region as well as to build and strengthen personal and economic ties.
The organisation of the APK 2022 conference in a Covid-19 endemic world requires careful planning to ensure strict adherence with mandatory safe management measures (SMM). In view of safe distancing only 500 tickets have been offered so far.
In view of the on-going development of the endemic, the organiser is now more confident that the APK 2022 conference is able to accommodate more participants and is issuing additional tickets called “Late Registration Tickets” from 5 September 2022 onwards. The organiser reserves the right to withdraw the Late Registration Tickets should more stringent SMMs be reintroduced in Singapore. In such an event where a Late Registration Ticket is withdrawn, the ticket price would be reimbursed, except for the ticket handling fee amounting to 10% of the ticket price.
“I am very much looking forward to opening this year’s Asia-Pacific Conference of German Business in Singapore this November, together with Roland Busch, Chairman of the Asia-Pacific Committee of German Business. The conference will focus on two issues which will play a key role in the coming years: Diversification and Sustainability. In this context, the Indo-Pacific is a very important partner for us. The Asia-Pacific Conference of German Business is the major platform enabling us all to tap the great potential of relations between the Indo-Pacific region and Germany.”

“There are over 40 diverse countries in Asia today – just imagine the possibilities for positive and shared bilateral opportunities between Germany and Asia as we come together in Singapore for the Asia-Pacific Conference of German Business. I can’t think of a more important time than now for German and Asian industry to demonstrate leadership through the power of collaboration, cooperation and technology. Harnessing our combined strengths will drive sustainable growth and prosperity for the region.”
