Benefits of participation
The HPAIR Asia Conference is a 5-day academic program organized in mid-August in an Asian country. Accepted delegates will gain exposure to contemporary issues spanning multiple spectrum of human life, including political, social, economic, cultural, and business. As the world becomes more globalized as well as commercialized, the boundary between business and other aspects of society is increasingly less rigid. The Asia Conference will capture this amazing phenomenon and help delegates understand its impacts on the future of international relations.
Additionally, HPAIR will promote understanding of the economic, political, social, and cultural issues facing the Asia-Pacific region within the Harvard community by organizing panels and other events on Harvard’s campus.
