Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC)


A year-long program of virtual conferences

Cliftons supports New Zealand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade to deliver a year of events for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum.


As the 2021 host for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) needed to find a way to deliver the event in the face of COVID-19 travel restrictions. With high-profile participants unable to travel internationally, MFAT worked with Cliftons in Wellington to deliver a series of virtual events throughout the year.

"On behalf of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA), I would like to thank Cliftons for assisting the College in ensuring the delivery of the RCPA Examinations. We could not have executed the delivery of the examinations without the support and professionalism provided by Cliftons particularly with the challenges that COVID had brought. Your work has been greatly appreciated by all of us".
