Welcome to the 2012 Model-APEC Conference in Guangzhou, China! May 19-25, 2012
The Osgood Center is proud to announce the 2012 Model Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, held at the Guangdong University of Foreign Studies in Guangzhou, China! Throughout this conference, students and delegates will represent Member Economies of this dynamic region in discussing wide-reaching technical, political, and economic issues affecting this critical part of the world.
While heavily influenced by the Model UN format, Model-APEC offers its own unique dynamic and specific focus on international economics. The Osgood Center inspires to make Model-APEC a critical forum for educating students from all over the world on issues such as international development, international business, international economics, as well as the technical and security elements of these policy areas.
