We are delighted to announce that the Centres of Asia-Pacific Excellence in partnership with Te Puni Kokiri, and the APEC Voices (NZ) Trust will support this year’s APEC Voices 2022 youth delegates to represent Aotearoa at the international APEC CEO Summit in Thailand.

The applications we received have been of extremely high calibre and it was not an easy decision for the selection committee to choose the four delegates from the applicant pool.
We whole-heartedly congratulate the four chosen delegates:

• Josh Ellwood, Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Global Studies, The University of Auckland
• Kaylen Hojdelewicz, Bachelor of Communication, The University of Waikato
• Mareikura Ikin, young wahine Māori nominated by Te Puni Kōkiri
• Melanie Roundill, Master of Health Psychology, Victoria University of Wellington

You can follow them along their journey on any of the three CAPEs’ LinkedIn accounts!
