Asia-Pacific Federation of the World Council

The World Council for Gifted and Talented Children has an affiliated Asia-Pacific Federation which was founded in 1989.

A new website is now in place including a news service for the region which is regularly updated. There is provision for the addition of resources and members’ blogs but relatively little has been uploaded to date. The current President is Jiannong Shi of China. Other Committee members are drawn from the UAE, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand and Korea. There is also a link to a membership list which currently contains 188 names.

Federation members organise a biennial conference. The 11th Conference took place in Sydney, Australia in July/August 2010.  In 2008 the location was Singapore. Earlier conferences were in Taiwan (2006), South Korea (2004), Thailand (2002) and Beijing (2000).

The 2012 conference will be in Dubai.
