CREATING NEW DYNAMISM, FOSTERING A SHARED FUTURE

Creating “new dynamism” for economic growth and integration has become an urgent demand for the Asia-Pacific amid sluggish recovery of regional and global trade and economic growth in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. Boosting trade and investment, and promoting economic integration, structural reforms and SMEs innovation are critical factors that enable APEC economies to better harness all opportunities from the fourth industrial revolution and the third wave of globalisation. The theme also accentuates the common and long-term goal of APEC to build a peaceful, stable, integrated and prosperous community in the Asia-Pacific.
