Themed “Our Digital Future in a Divided World”, the 22nd APRU Annual Presidents’ Meeting, held in Taipei from June 24 to 26, 2018, ended on a high note. Led by 27 presidents, over 100 delegates from 37 member universities were in attendance.

The major points for discussion, among thought leaders from academia, business and public policy, were the urgent questions posed by the technological revolution.
