Asia Policy Forum

APF Bangkok 2017

Every year, AVPN will convene a network of practitioners and experts from the public, private, multi-lateral and civic sector to support learning and community-building by officials and advisors involved in creating effective legislation to support social investments and social enterprises. Starting in Hong Kong in 2016, now in Bangkok in 2017, the Asia Policy Forum helps to create a community of leaders that will transform the future of social economy in Asia.

2017’s annual convening will focus on Collaborative Policies to Enhance the Social Economy. A rapidly evolving social entrepreneurship, social investment and philanthropy landscape, increasing attention to sustainable development and responsible business conduct, all point to the strategic importance of aligning desired policy outcomes across sectors. The social economy is an arena where such collaborative and innovative policy approaches can take centre stage. The essence of sustainable and effective social economy breaks down silos and capitalises on the synergies when different parts of society work together. Policy environments and instruments that follow this principle are innovatively breaking down departmental and cross-sector barriers, to better support the growth of social purpose organisations.
