APEC 2013: Key Outcomes and Re-positioning to Meet New Economic Conditions

Synopsis:

Earlier this month, Indonesia hosted APEC Leaders in Bali to discuss policy plans and actions under the theme of APEC 2013: Resilient Asia-Pacific, Engine of Global Growth.  The meeting of APEC Leaders occurred against the background of weak global growth with risks continuing to be tilted to the downside. 

In this seminar, representatives of the Policy Support Unit – the research arm of APEC – will assess the latest economic developments in the APEC region, including the impact of the recent resurgent financial market tensions on economic activity.  The Policy Support Unit will also discuss the economic outlook and the key challenges facing the APEC region in achieving sustainable and inclusive growth in the short and medium term.

Against the background of an unstable economic recovery, APEC Leaders have taken a number of important actions that have helped to contain key risks to growth, improve financial market conditions and sustain recovery.  The speakers will detail some of the milestones and important policy actions that APEC members have collectively achieved this year.

Dr Denis Hew, Director, Policy Support Unit, APEC Secretariat;
Ms Quynh Le, Macroeconomist, Policy Support Unit, APEC Secretariat
