The association was established as a result of a series of conferences organized by a group of economists in the United States, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Mainland China on the Asian economies and the 1997 Asian financial crisis. They all felt the need for more forums for economists to share their research work with others, to interact with other economists, to search for more research opportunities and topics, to make policy recommendations, and to make more friends.

The intention to establish this association was publicly announced by Shin-ichi Fukuda, Chung Mo Koo, Jeff Chien-Fu Lin, and Kar-yiu Wong in the closing session of the “Asian Crisis, V” conference in Chuncheon, Korea on December 10, 2003.

The association was established with the following mission:

·        to promote interactions among economists in the Asia-Pacific region and in other parts of the world;

·        to encourage economic research in the region; and

·        to disseminate economic research results.

 

These are some of the conferences organized before:

Some of the members of the preparatory committee were co-organizers of these conferences. You can also click here to get information about other conferences related to Asia and foreign trade that were similarly organized and attended by many participants from Asia, North America, and Europe.
