What is APEC?
The Asia-Paciﬁc Economic Cooperation (APEC) is a regional economic forum with 21 member economies across Asia-Paciﬁc region. Established in 1989, APEC has its core value on promoting regional economic integration under a non-legally binding manner and friendly environment. In the now-extended COVID-19 era, APEC has made its utmost eﬀort to adapt and tackle with the unprecedented challenges which eﬀect the region’s economic well-being. Putrajaya Vision 2040 has been put in place with an essence to drive APEC’s economy to be more open, dynamic, resilient and peaceful.
