English term or phrase: Asia-Pacific region vs. Asian-Pacific region
Are they just the same? I have a text where both appear but I can see no difference from the context.

English translation:They ought to be the same.
Explanation:
I am most familiar with Asia-Pacific. I wonder if the latter is a typo, but in any case, it should not refer to a different region.
