APEP study trips: investing in first-hand knowledge and personal contacts

The Atlantic & Pacific Exchange Program (APEP) is a one-of-a-kind organization, its specialism as unique today as it was when APEP was founded three decades ago: high-level, on-site international study programs which allow leaders and aspiring leaders from government and business to exchange views and knowledge, informally and face-to-face, with peers and experts in other countries. We organize tailor-made programs (exclusively for APEP Member organizations) as well as theme programs on an invitation or open-registration basis.

Non-profit, neutral and independent, APEP was established in 1983 with the aim of improving mutual understanding between the Netherlands and the United States by promoting first-hand exchanges of knowledge. Founded in Rotterdam by an American journalist (Bob Williams, APEP’s president until his retirement in 1995), APEP soon expanded its activities to East Asia (China and Japan), Canada, and large parts of Europe. More >>>
