Media registration is open for the Third APEC Senior Officials’ Meeting in Ho Chi Minh City on 29-30 August, to be led by Viet Nam Permanent Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister and 2017 Chair of APEC Senior Officials Bui Thanh Son. Accreditation will also cover the preceding cluster of key trade and sectoral official meetings from 18-28 August.

The Third APEC Senior Officials’ Meeting, known as SOM3, will advance new joint actions by the 21 APEC member economies to foster freer, more equitable Asia-Pacific trade and growth. Focus will be on improving economic opportunities and the capacity of people and businesses to capitalize amid increasing automation, competition and market change.

Senior Officials will build on trade and sectoral policy development meetings in Ho Chi Minh City to boost regional economic integration, including transparency and participation in trade agreements, and the easing of cross-border trade barriers faced by businesses big and small. Priorities will also include promoting innovation and trade in the auto, digital and health sectors as well as sustainable agriculture in response to climate change and rural-urban development.

They will consider recommendations from the APEC Business Advisory Council that will meet in Toronto, Canada on 24-28 July.

Trade and sectoral meetings: 18-28 August 2017
