Description of the Subject: Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC).

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) has twenty-one members, representing 41% of the World population, 57% of the World's GDP and 44% of the global trade.

The member economies of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) are Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, the Philippines, the Russian Federation, Singapore, the Chinese Taipei (Taiwan), Thailand, the United States of America, and Vietnam.

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation is a forum for assisting the economic growth, cooperation, International Trade, and foreign direct investment in the Asia-Pacific region.

  1. The Asia-Pacific region has consistently been the most economically dynamic region
  2. Since the beginning of the APEC in 1989, total international trade has grown 395%

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation has three official observers organisations:

  1. Association of Southeast Asian Nations Secretariat
  2. Pacific Economic Cooperation Council
  3. Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) has worked to reduce tariffs and other trade barriers across the Asia-Pacific region, creating efficient national economies and considerably increasing the international trade.

The pillars of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation are the Bogor Goals of free and open foreign trade and the foreign direct investment (FDI) in the Asia-Pacific region by 2010 for industrialised economies and 2020 for the developing economies. These objectives were adopted by the APEC Leaders in 1994 in Bogor (Indonesia).

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) focuses on three key areas (the three pillars of the APEC):

  1. Regional Trade and foreign direct investment liberalisation
  2. International Business facilitation
  3. Economic and technical cooperation

As a consequence, the intra-APEC trade of products (exports and imports) has grown from USD 1.7 trillion in 1989 to USD 8.44 trillion - an average increase of 8.5% per year; and international trade in goods within the region accounted for 67% of the total external trade of the APEC products.

Above thirty bilateral Free Trade Agreements have been finished between the APEC member economies. As a result of the APEC Trade Facilitation Action Plan, the cost of international business transactions across the region was reduced by 5%.

Main religions in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum member countries:

  1. Christian countries: Australia, Canada, Chile, the United States of America, the Philippines, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, and Russia
  2. Muslim countries: Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, and Malaysia
  3. Buddhist countries: Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, and Vietnam. In Singapore, 42% of the population is Buddhist

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) is an inter-civilisation agreement between the Western-Christian Civilisation, Sinic - Buddhist, Orthodox and the Islamic Civilisation.
