The Asia-Pacific Quality Network (APQN)

Mission Statement: ‘To enhance the quality of higher education in Asia and the Pacific region through strengthening the work of quality assurance agencies and extending the cooperation between them.’

On January 18, 2003, the Asia-Pacific Quality Network (APQN) was founded in the Pearl of the Orient - Hongkong, China. This non-profit, non-governmental organization has been vigorously devoted in improving higher education quality in the Asia-Pacific Region ever since. Throughout the past thirteen years, under the leadership of APQN pioneers and four previous Presidents - Mr. Peter PT Cheung, Ms. Concepcion Pijano, Dr. Antony Stalla, and Dr. JagannathPatil, APQN has been committed to quality higher education and supportive of quality assurance agencies (QAAs) in the region. Over 30 big projects were completed and the achievements were remarkable. All these made APQN a legacy for us to inherit. Today, APQN has 166 members from 38 countries and territories , and is the largest and most influential non-profit international organization in the field of higher education quality assurance in Asia-Pacific Region.
