The inaugural APEC University Leaders’ Forum brought university Presidents to join business leaders and policymakers to tackle critical skills shortage in Data Science & Analytics (DSA) and support regional competitiveness in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The Forum took place as a side event of the APEC CEO Summit 2017  “Creating New Dynamism, Fostering A Shared Future” and was organized in partnership with the Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training and the Vietnam National University, Hanoi on November 8, 2017.

At the Forum Dr. Christopher Tremewan, APRU Secretary General, and Mr. Clay Stobaugh, Vice President of The Wiley Network and Co-Chair of APEC Project DARE (Data Analytics Raising Employment), announced a new partnership committed to bridge the projected skills-gap in the Asia Pacific.

Dr. Wang Yan, Coordinator of Education Network (EDNET) of the APEC Human Resource Development Working Group launched, as part of the Forum, the APEC Education Strategy Action Plan, which was approved the previous day by the 21 APEC economies.
