Details

As Indonesia takes the helm for APEC 2013, the Asia-Pacific continues to emerge as the potential trendsetter for future models of sustainable growth, trade and investment liberalization, and fostering innovation to address economic and demographic challenges. Two distinct visions for multilateral trading relationships the Asia Society will join the U.S. National Center for APEC and the U.S. APEC Business Coalition in hosting an APEC briefing—the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership—continue to coalesce in the region. APEC stands to play a unique role as a forum for the region’s major trading partners to cooperate and engage on the strengths, weaknesses, and interaction of these initiatives and to assess their relative merits as potential pathways to APEC’s long-standing goal: a Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific.

Once again, the Asia Society will join the U.S. National Center for APEC and the U.S. APEC Business Coalition in hosting an APEC briefing to review the issues discussed at the Vladivostok Summit, preview priorities and opportunities for Indonesia’s host year, and explore what these trends mean for the region’s future. U.S. Senior Official for APEC Atul Keshap and Assistant USTR Wendy Cutler will anchor this annual program. This year’s program, to be held on January 10 at 8am, will also include a discussion focusing on issues identified by the region’s leading CEOs as the primary concerns for business in the region.

Speakers include:

Atul Keshap, U.S. Senior Official, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation
Wendy Cutler, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Japan, Korea and APEC Affairs
Monica Whaley, President, National Center for APEC
