Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) is a regional economic forum established in 1989 to leverage the growing interdependence of the Asia-Pacific. APEC’s 21 members aim to create greater prosperity for the people of the region by promoting balanced, inclusive, sustainable, innovative and secure growth and by accelerating regional economic integration.
APEC meetings throughout this year have focused on regional economic issues, including sustainability, digitalization, women’s economic empowerment, trade facilitation, energy security, food security, and health.
This year’s APEC summit gathered governmental leaders from US and China, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.
In addition, the 2023 APEC Summit was attended by global business leaders such as X (formerly Twitter) owner Elon Musk, Satya Nadella (CEO of Microsoft), Sundar Pichai (CEO of Google Inc.) and so on, at the APEC CEO Summit.
