Message from the Co-Directors

Prof. Merit Janow Prof. David Weinstein

The APEC Study Center (ASC) at Columbia University maintains its support of the University's rich tradition of research, conferences, lecture programs, and teaching on the AsiaPacific region by serving as the focal point of study on issues of business and economic importance for the region for over 27 years.


Columbia University has safely and carefully reintroduced in-person classes, work, and activities across its campuses, with ASC core faculty and staff following suit. The ASC persists in its support of courses focusing on this region at Columbia Business School (CBS), the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA), and across the University as a whole, and the Center actively collaborated on programs at numerous Columbia and other organizations, cosponsoring a total of 17 webinar events in the 2020-2021 academic year.


As the world continues to face challenges, we at the ASC will continue to do our part to ensure the views and goals of the Asia-Pacific continue to be represented in conversations held on issues ranging from climate change to economic security to global crises and beyond. We also look forward to APEC 2023, which will be hosted by the United States.


The ASC’s programming and research are made possible by the commitment and energy of the faculty and staff involved as well as our generous supporters. In particular, we extend our deepest gratitude to the Lotte Group of Korea, ASC’s longtime sponsor.
