The Australian APEC Study Centre (AASC) at RMIT University is a leading research and capacity building institution in the Asia-Pacific region.
Globalisation has seen the world become a smaller place where goods, services, investment, ideas and people can flow easily across borders.
The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) was established to facilitate balanced, inclusive and sustainable growth across all countries within the Asia-Pacific region. APEC, as the regional economic forum, champions free and open trade and investment that benefits all and promotes economic prosperity throughout the Asia-Pacific region, especially within developing countries.
AASC supports APEC’s objectives through the delivery of training and research which builds capacity among policy makers and regulators to create positive and sustainable economic, social and educational outcomes. We use our partner and industry networks both domestically and internationally to help achieve this.
Working within RMIT University, we also offer valuable global engagement collaboration and learning opportunities for academics and students alike.
