Vietnam playing an active role in APEC

16/11/2015
In the new strategic stage of Vietnam’s global integration, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) is one of the regional mechanisms, in which the cooperation mechanisms in Asia-Pacific are respected and promoted.
The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders Meeting (AELM) will be held in Manila from November 18 to 19, 2015.
The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum was established in 1989 and has become the pre-eminent economic forum in the Asia-Pacific region. Its primary purpose is to facilitate economic growth and prosperity in the region, with the vision of creating a seamless regional economy. APEC pursues these objectives through trade and investment liberalization, business facilitation and economic and technical cooperation.
APEC aims to strengthen regional economic integration by removing impediments to trade and investment “at the border”, enhancing supply chain connectivity "across the border" and improving the business environment "behind the border". It endeavours to improve the operating environment for business by reducing the cost of cross-border trade, improving access to trade information and simplifying regulatory and administrative processes. APEC also helps member economies build the institutional capacity to implement and take advantage of the benefits of trade and investment reform. APEC supports the multilateral trade negotiations underway in the World Trade Organization and complements the goals of the G-20 Framework for Strong, Sustainable and Balanced Growth in the Asia-Pacific Region.
In 1998, Vietnam joined APEC, marking the important implementation of foreign policy of diversification, multi-lateralization and international economic integration. APEC is a forum that contains almost leading economic, trade and strategic partners of Vietnam, including 7 strategic partners (Russia, China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore) and 5 comprehensive partners (the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Chile).
Vietnam has actively participated and contributed to APEC cooperation for recent 17 years. Most importantly, Vietnam had been successfully assumed the role of chairman of APEC 2006, holding the 14th APEC Summit, the 18th APEC Foreign and Economic Ministerial Conference and more 100 events, issuing long-term outlook, that targets to establish the free trade region of the entire Asia-Pacific region, the Hanoi Action Plan to carry out the Bogor Goals and comprehensive reforming measures, contributing to create new motivations for APEC cooperation.
Vietnam has also been one of the most active members of the APEC, proposing and participating in more than 90 new initiatives on every area such as: trade, investment, economic-technical cooperation, resolving emergencies, medicine, anti-terrorism, food security, energy, small and medium enterprises... Notably, in 2014, Vietnam successfully hosted the APEC ministerial conference on Human Resource Development (Hanoi, 9/2014), issuing initiatives and the 2015-2018 Action Plan that promote high-quality jobs and strengthen the human connection via human resource development.
In 2015, Vietnam had also proposed and hold many APEC important activities, including 10 conferences, dialogues about public-private partnership in infrastructure investment; inland port development, energy management system, financing for renewable energy, wind energy development...
The preparation for the APEC Vietnam 2017 has been implemented as scheduled and synchronized all aspects of the content, reception, propaganda-culture, security-medicine and logistic. Vietnam has been actively consulting the International Secretariat about the priorities in 2017; starting to prepare the facilities, reception and security-medicine; building the adequate human resource for the APEC 2017 that contributes to build a core force for the international integration of Vietnam in new stage.
The Vietnam delegation to the 23rd APEC Summit is to actively contribute to important issues of the Summit, especially the issues related to economic connection, human resource development, food security... promoting the image of an active member in APEC and preparing to host the APEC 2017./.

China has feared APEC will mention the East Sea dispute, so this country required the hold country Philippines did not give the East Sea issue in agenda of the APEC
