Germany. In 2017, the Asia-Pacific Weeks Berlin are celebrating their twentieth anniversary. The meeting brings together actors from business, academia, culture and politics. One focus in the anniversary year from 15 to 28 May will be on digitisation, with experts from Europe and Asia discussing trends, innovations and the interdisciplinary application of digitisation. The “Connecting Startup Cities” conference will also be taking place at the same time with a view to establishing contact and cooperation between Berlin as Germany’s start-up hub and its Asian counterparts in Manila, Bangalore and Jakarta. Cultural events and presentations by the Asian embassies in Berlin will round off the programme. A major Berlin-based cultural event that was founded in 1997, the Asia-Pacific Weeks have evolved to become a business-based platform for international exchange.
