APK 2020

It is with great regret that we have to inform you that due to the current situation, we have to postpone the Asia-Pacific Conference of German Business (APK), which was scheduled for October 18-19, 2020 in Tokyo, Japan. We have taken this difficult decision together with the sponsoring associations of the APA and the host AHK Japan against the background of uncertainty about the further course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the lack of planning security and possible travel restrictions, which may still be in place in autumn 2020.

Sponsors & confirmed participants will be contacted by us in the coming days via mail. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us at info@asiapacificconference.com.

Please continue to block October 19, 2020 in your calendar as we will be hosting  a special “APK digital” in Berlin on that date. Additional information will follow.


The central task of the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is to reinvigorate the social market economy, stay innovative in the long term and strengthen the social fabric in Germany.


Asia’s role in the world economy is growing. The APA wants to shape the future in partnership with Asia. Our principles are, equal and sustainable development. German companies doing business with Asia promote the further integration of Asian and European economies. 


The German Chambers of Commerce Abroad (AHK) are institutions of German foreign trade promotion. In this sense, the AHKs in the Asia-Pacific region advise, support and represent German companies in Asia-Pacific which wish to develop or expand their business activities abroad.
