Working within RMIT University, we have a wide network of specialist Asia Pacific trade, economic and development academics, both in Australia and internationally.


We call on these renowned academic experts to collaborate on research and policy development activities and share their expertise at capacity building workshops.


As the AASC, we also form part of a wider consortium of APEC study centres across the Asia Pacific. We are a leader in regional collaboration and oversee multilateral research projects, including supporting Papua New Guinea to establish its first APEC study centre in 2017.  


Our role as the Secretariat for Australia’s Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (AusPECC) further strengthens our academic network, allowing us to combine the interests of academia, business and government to create practical policy outcomes for Australia in the Asia Pacific.
