Senior International Leaders’ Week 2020

Every year, APRU Senior International Leaders convene to discuss the issues facing their societies and the Asia-Pacific region and to review and plan our international strategy as a network.

This year the Senior International Leaders’ Week themed “Acting Together in the New Abnormal” will be held virtually from October 6 to 9, 2020.

This event will span over four days. Interest group meetings will be arranged around a main meeting. This enables you to attend the main meeting and also to sign up for the sessions which suit your interest and schedule.
