From 26 to 28 October 2011, the Hague Conference on Private International Law held its fourth Asia-Pacific Conference in Manila, Philippines, to discuss the relevance, implementation and practical operation of a number of important Hague Conventions within the Asia Pacific Region.

The Manila Conference focused on the areas of family law and legal co-operation and litigation, with particular emphasis on the Convention of 29 May 1993 on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption and the Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents (Apostille Convention). It also considered private international law aspects of temporary and circular economic migration.
