The Asian Population Association (APA) Conference has become a major international event drawing over 1,600 participants from over 50 countries around the globe. The Conference is held every three years, providing opportunities for experts and students to share and discuss their scientific study of population issues. The fourth APA International Conference will be held this year between 11-14 July in Shanghai, China. The aim is to promote research, share knowledge, develop the capacity of population institutions in the region, and engage in advocacy and policy dialogue to advance the development agenda in the region.
Researchers from the World Population Program (POP) will present current studies at this conference. POP Program Director Wolfgang Lutz is invited keynote speaker at this conference. In his presentation he will argue that the Asian century will be based on human capital.
