Asian Association for Public Administration (AAPA)
The Asian Association for Public Administration (AAPA) was established in 2010 with the aim to expand and improve research and academic exchange on public administration and public policy in the Asian region. Prior to it, a number of Asian scholars formed the Asian Public Management Forum and had annual meetings for several years since 2001 which paved the way for the establishment of AAPA.
The 1st inaugural conference of AAPA was held in Tokyo in 2010, followed by the 2nd in Jakarta in 2011, the 3rd in Hong Kong SAR of China in 2012, and the 4th in Seoul in 2013. The 5th annual conference was held in Cebu, the Philippines on February 6-8, 2014. The 6th conference was held in Xi¡¯an, China on January 9-10, 2015 .The 7th conference was held in Thailand in February, 2016.
I strongly believe that AAPA can provide great opportunities for networking with scholars and practitioners, as well as scholarly activities that will encourage the development of new professional relationships in the field of public administration in Asia and the rest of the world.
Once again, thank you for your contributions to AAPA. Your support and dedication have ensured.
