I have great pleasure in personally inviting you to take part in the biennial Asia Pacific Cities Summit (APCS), to be held in Kaohsiung in September 2013.
APCS is an integral part of Brisbane City Council’s strategy for engagement with cities in the Asia Pacific region and beyond. Building on the tremendous success of the previous Summit held in Brisbane in 2011, I look forward to the even greater business and networking opportunities that 2013 APCS will bring.
I am sure Kaohsiung will do a magnificent job of bringing together both civic and business leaders to continue the exchange of ideals and city-building discussions and business outcomes, for which this event is such a wonderful platform.
Brisbane and Kaohsiung share a very strong sister city relationship and I am delighted that 2013 APCS will further strengthen the ties between our cities, as well as other participating cities from around the globe.
Lord Mayor of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
