Mayors' Forum

"Through a curated session, participants share knowledge, develop situations for issues regarding city governance, and promote the growth and prosperity of cities across the Asia Pacific region and beyond"

"Increasingly cities are leading the way. It is our urban leaders who are innovating and shaping solutions that can shape our lives - how we live, how we work, how we thrive." - Curtis S. Chin, Facilitator of the 2023APCS Mayors' Forum.

The Mayors' Forum is at the cornerstone of the APCS. It provides an intimate and exclusive opportunity for attending elected municipal leaders to create their own global network of influential peers and learn the latest trends and opportunities in city management.

The 2023APCS Mayors' Forum will be facilitated by the Milken Institute. The Milken Institute is a non-profit, non-partisan think tank focussed on accelerating measurable progress on the path to a meaningful life.

The Mayors' Forum will be co-facilitated by Curtis S. Chin, Chairman of the Milken Institute Asia Center, and Amos Garcia, Director of the Milken Institute Asia Center. As former U.S. Ambassador to the Asian Development Bank, Mr Chin has provided counsel to government and business on ESG, stakeholder engagement, public affairs, corporate responsibility, crisis management and market entry. Amos Garcia leads the Milken Institute Asia Center's events and programs related to financial technology, food and agriculture, and aging; as well as managing government relations in the Asia Pacific region. Prior to joining the Asia Center, Mr Garcia was a researcher for the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.

Curtis looks forward to joining the 2023APCS and co-facilitate the 2023APCS Mayors' Forum:
