About Us



The Asia-Pacific Industrial Organisation Society (APIOS) was founded in 2016 by a group of economists based in Australia and New Zealand.

APIOS provides members with access to an industrial economics network in the region and around the world. The society’s main function is to put on an annual Asia-Pacific Industrial Organisation Conference (APIOC). This provides a platform where researchers can present their work and regularly engage with their community of peers in Asia and the Pacific.
