Since our inception, APAC FOCUS focused on promoting cultural and academic exchange among people from Asia Pacific regions.


APAC Focus is a program developed by the the IGCS in 2023, which is a Hong Kong-based independent, and learned scholarly platform that dedicates to promoting the development and intellectual exchange of the Asia Pacific region.


Our program is comprised of a diverse group of individuals and professionals who share a common interest in the sustainable development of the region. Our mission is to facilitate collaboration among young people across the Asia Pacific region by creating platforms for dialogue, knowledge exchange, and networking. We believe that by bringing together individuals and organizations from different sectors and backgrounds, we can promote best practices, foster innovation, and enhance the well-being of the region's people and environment.


Through our various programs and initiatives, we aim to contribute to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by addressing pressing regional challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate change, and biodiversity loss. Join us in our efforts to promote a sustainable and prosperous Asia Pacific region.

They include, but are not limited to, China's ongoing reform and vision for the future, the trajectory of Hong Kong's development along with its role and position in China and the Asia-Pacific region, the constructive interaction across the strait and collective progress and cooperation of the four regions on both sides of the strait.

  • Another objective is to establish a broad intellectual network. We endeavor to collaborate with other research and think tank institutions, promote and facilitate related talent development, educational initiatives, and academic exchanges.
