The first JA AP Youth Talk Conference was successfully held at the Asia Society in Hong Kong on June 16, 2016. The conference brought together youth, global and Asia Pacific regional business leaders from all around the world to discuss and respond to the main youth issues in this region.
This is an event JA Asia Pacific aims to organize periodically in an effort to help young people facilitate the exchange of ideas around best practices for building businesses and contributing to socially-minded economic growth in the region.
