DLSU to host Harvard Asia Confab

The Harvard Project for Asian & International Relations (HPAIR) Asia Conference, one of Asia’s largest business and youth leadership gatherings, returns to the Philippines after 21 years. DLSU will host the confab this August 20-24.

As Harvard University’s largest annual student conference in the Asia-Pacific region, HPAIR has continuously gathered and carefully chosen international students and academics from major cities throughout Asia. The confab, which focuses on social, political, economic, and cultural business issues, is known to attract key dignitaries such as UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, and Director of the Earth Institute, Professor Jeffrey Sachs.

“We are thrilled to host HPAIR in Manila for the first time since 1994,” Jonathan Beltran, the Executive Director for the HPAIR Asia Conference 2015- Host Country Organizing Committee, said. “With events like our hosting of APEC, and with the country’s tourism push for this year, we believe that this event marks our country’s desire to be more internationally competitive and reflects DLSU’s commitment to academic excellence.”

The bid was selected for seamless logistics, ambitious plans for delegate engagement, and the rising importance of the Philippines in the region. “We believe that the time is right for HPAIR to return to the Philippines, a country growing in international influence and importance,” said Artur Meller, the HPAIR Executive Director for the 2015 Asia Conference.

“Working with you and regional partners, we hope to highlight the greatest facets of the country while exposing our conference delegates to a wide range of international issues,” Meller added.

HPAIR and De La Salle University will be formally launching the 2015 HPAIR Asia Conference on January 22, 2015 at a luncheon to be held within DLSU, together with members of the Harvard Club of the Philippines and conference partners. Officials from HPAIR and De La Salle University will be in attendance as well.
