The Pan Pacific Congress (PPC) of Real Estate Appraisers, Valuers, and Counsellors was first organized by Australia, America, and New Zealand in Sydney, Australia, in 1959. The congress aims to connect the various appraisal or valuation institutes in Pacific Basin and provide a forum for members to share and learn appraisal- or valuation-related knowledge from each other. The event takes place every two years in the host countries and is organized by the professional appraisal or equivalent bodies of member countries.
Since the first event held by Australia in Sydney, the Congress has been held 31 times over 60 years, and the members are from 12 countries in Pacific Basin. In 2020, the Congress was extended to 2021 due to the severe pandemic and held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, through an online conference. Taiwan also faces similar dilemmas in 2022. Fortunately, the pandemic condition in Taiwan is stable in 2023, and the Congress can be held in New Taipei City, Taiwan.
