The 2nd Embassy Day Asia-Pacific was held on September 10, 2014 at the House of World Cultures, and we want to thank the many guests, the embassies, event partners, exhibitors and the HKW, who contributed to this wonderful and successful conference.

Eleven embassies and representative offices participated in this year’s Embassy Day. They presented urban development concepts with innovative technologies, companies from the smart cities sector in their respective countries and investment opportunities for German companies. In addition there was an accompanying cultural program with photo exhibitions, musical performances, documentaries and movies, which provided personal impressions and entertainment between the seminars. The Embassy Day Asia-Pacific is an annual event and offers the unique opportunity for personal and intensive networking with the various embassies and representative offices in the Asia-Pacific region in Berlin. We look forward to the next date: May 19, 2015 at the Federal Foreign Office (as part of the 10th Asia-Pacific Weeks Berlin). The Embassy Day is organized by the Asia-Pacific Forum Berlin in cooperation with the Senate Department for Economics, Technology and Research.

The events of the APW were attended by more than 2,300 participants. Around a quarter of the visitors came to Berlin from China, South Korea, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan and Mongolia.
