The Asia Pacific Cities Summit (APCS) & Mayors' Forum draws representatives from more than 100 cities to plan for the future of our cities, inspiring insightful conversations about the sustainability, accessibility and innovation of our region.
The health and economic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on our way of life and, as we continue to grapple with these challenges, it's important we work together to get our cities and regions back on their feet.
Governments, businesses and emerging leaders have responded rapidly to keep our cities afloat. While challenging, the pandemic has allowed us to reimagine our urban hubs and the lessons learnt will be important, as we continue to adjust and adapt to long-term challenges caused by the pandemic.
As Lord Mayor of Brisbane, I remain focused on supporting residents throughout this difficult time and Brisbane City Council is investing in job-creating projects to get residents back in work, providing a much-needed boost to our local economy so that Brisbane survives and thrives again.
I sincerely hope that you and your loved ones have remained healthy and safe during these challenging times.
Lord Mayor of Brisbane, Home of the APCS
