APEC 2010 Summit: 'Seeking Prosperity After Crisis'
Accelerating regional economic integration and promoting a new, sustainable growth model for the Asia-Pacific region were themes that dominated the agenda of the annual APEC Summit, which was hosted this year by Japanese Prime Minister Kan from November 12-13 in Yokohama. As Asia increasingly assumes a primary role in driving global growth and leading the world economy out of recession, APEC continues to play a vital role as the premier forum for the region's major trading partners to cooperate and engage on economic and trade matters.
For the tenth consecutive year, the Asia Society will join the US National Center for APEC and the US APEC Business Coalition in hosting a post-APEC briefing to review the issues that were discussed at the Yokohama Summit and what they will mean for the region's future. The program will also provide an opportunity to explore how these issues and outcomes will be carried forward during the US hosting of APEC in 2011. US Senior Official for APEC Kurt Tong will be joined in conversation by President of the National Center for APEC Monica Whaley at this year's program. The program will also include a discussion on key private sector initiatives being developed to support the APEC 2011 USA hosting effort.
