APEC in Brief (アジア太平洋経済協力会議)
Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation was established in 1989 in response to the growing interdependence among Asia-Pacific economies. From its modest beginning as an informal Ministerial-level dialogue group with 12 members, APEC has become a formidable regional forum, especially with the introduction of the annual informal Economic Leaders’ Meeting in 1993. Its goal is to advance economic dynamism and sense of community within the Asia-Pacific region.

Today there are 21 member economies comprising some 2.5 billion people, a combined gross domestic product of over US$18 trillion in 1999 and over 47 percent of world trade. APEC has established itself as the primary regional vehicle for promoting open trade and practical economic and technical cooperation.
