Description of the Online Course - Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC): economy, foreign trade, and investment.

When the APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) Leaders joined in 2004 in Bogor (Indonesia); they implicated to “reach a free and open regional trade and foreign direct investment by 2010 for industrialised economies and by 2020 for developing economies.”

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) members agreed to follow this goal by reducing foreign trade and investment barriers and by promoting the free flow of products, services, and capital.

These targets are the “Bogor Goals,” an ambitious expression of common belief of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) that a free and open trade are fundamental to realise the potential economic growth of the Asia-Pacific region and to improve the economic and social results for all the APEC economies.
