What is APEC?
The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation is an important framework for advancing the prosperity of people and societies in the region. Together, APEC governments and business achieve this by deepening economic cooperation, improving the environment for trade and investment, ushering inclusive and sustainable growth, and adapting innovative measures.
Its 21 member economies participate in the process: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Korea, Thailand, the United States and Viet Nam.
What is the APEC CEO Summit?
The APEC CEO Summit is Asia-Pacific’s premier business event and most influential meeting.
No other international conference features 10 APEC Leaders in the program each year (including those from the most powerful economies), who dialogue with CEOs and senior executives of leading global/regional companies and many of the most successful entrepreneurs. The APEC CEO Summit provides unmatched potential to build networks, influence thinking at levels as high as APEC Leaders, and take away relevant insight.
The APEC CEO Summit Program
The two-day APEC CEO Summit program engages delegates on some of the most pressing challenges and questions in the world today.
Program sessions include the State of the Global Economy, Pursuing Inclusive Growth, Innovation and the Digital Future, Climate Change, Trade, and other foremost issues which affect how business is done and how solutions ultimately translate to a better world.
The program typically features the participation of several Presidents and Prime Ministers of Asia Pacific economies, including that of the United States, China, Russia, Japan, Korea, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
The APEC CEO Summit is by-invitation-only. This year’s Summit aims to bring together 500-600 Chairmen, CEOs, and top global and regional corporate decision-makers; visionary entrepreneurs; senior figures in politics and highly-recognized thought leaders and notable members of civil society.
The APEC CEO Summit is a powerful branding and outreach platform.

The Host Country 2018: Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea is rich in mineral, agricultural, forestry and fisheries resources. Development is in the early stages, and government policy is focused on steady, sustainable growth with an even sharing of the benefits throughout the country.
Agriculture provides a subsistence livelihood for 85% of the people, and mineral deposits, including copper, gold, and oil, account for nearly two-thirds of export earnings.
The Government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Peter O’Neill is prioritizing and promoting investor confidence, efficiency of state institutions, and good relations with its neighbors and the wider global community.
