WELLINGTON: APEC: Coming Your Way!
Wednesday, 17 April 2019, 5:40pm - 6:40pm
GBLT2, Government Building, Pipitea Campus, Stout Street, Wellington

Speaker: Dr Alan Bollard

Gareth Evans described APEC as “four adjectives searching for a noun”, and we are still looking. Whatever the noun, APEC will be hosted by New Zealand soon (actually starting late next year). There will be traffic jams and over-priced hotel rooms. But it is also a chance to reinvigorate the organisation in an era of globalisation doubters, and apply some New Zealand objectives to the agenda.

Alan Bollard has just returned to Wellington after six years as Executive Director of the APEC Secretariat in Singapore.
