Description of the Sub-Subject: Free Trade Agreements (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation).

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) identifies the critical function that Regional Trade Agreements and Free Trade Agreements can perform in regional trade liberalisation in the Asia-Pacific Region.

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) was followed by the foundation of the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement in 1992. However, many Asian economies (Singapore, South Korea, Japan, and the People's Republic of China) also have launched to pursue Trade Agreements. Singapore is has finished thirteen Free Trade Agreements.

There also have been multilateral Free Trade Agreements (FTA) initiatives in the Asia-Pacific region.

China has entered into a Free Trade Agreements (FTA) with the ASEAN, and the chapter on foreign trade in products of the ASEAN-Korea entered into force in 2007.

The Agreement between Japan and the ASEAN was signed on 2008.

The ASEAN multilateral initiatives include a proposal for an ASEAN-India economic partnership and a recent decision to convert the long-standing bilateral trade cooperation between ASEAN-Australia and New Zealand into a Free Trade Agreements.
