"Now, more than ever, the Mayors' Forum is an opportunity not to be missed."
The Mayors' Forum is at the cornerstone of the APCS. This forum provides a significant opportunity for the heads of local government to come together and share insights, openly discuss issues facing their cities, and together, develop innovative solutions which promote growth and prosperity of cities across the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
The coronavirus pandemic in 2020 has forever changed cities and definition of normal, and local government has been at the forefront of many of these challenges.
The role of local government has changed and learning from coronavirus will be explored. City leaders will share their challenges and solutions for governing in this new era.
The 2021APCS Mayors' Forum was held live and in person in Brisbane. 51 Mayors and Deputy Mayors participated in the 2021APCS Mayors' Forum.
Mayors and deputy mayors from international cities had the choice of attending the forum either in person as a physical attendee or digitally as a virtual attendee.
