"The conference is usually attended by official delegations of the Ministries of Education and Science of the APEC states, but the universities themselves will participate for the first time. APRU is very interested in contacts with APEC, as the association is seeking the universities to get involved in solving national and international problems in the region," Vladimir Kurilov said.

APRU was formed in 1997 and comprises 45 leading research universities located in the Pacific region, namely in Australia, Canada, China, Chile, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, the United States and the Philippines. It aims at boosting cooperation between universities, and therby contributing to the economic, scientific and cultural development of the region.
