What is the Asia-Pacific Digital Trade Summit @AC?
The Asia-Pacific Digital Trade Summit @AC is an extracurricular activity that allows students to discuss relevant international issues that government leaders face on a day-to-day basis. As delegates representing the interests of individual countries, the team researches their country’s issues on a given topic, develop a position and draft a five-year action plan. They then participate in the full-day summit, where they present their action plans, negotiate with other states, draft and pass a regional action plan, and ultimately attempt to resolve problems and conflicts. Through this process, students gain an understanding of the needs and goals of the country that they represent and how their country interacts within the international community on digital trade.
