Commemorative Issue: Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Forum
The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum was established as an
Australian initiative in 1989, when Canberra hosted the first informal dialogue
with 12 members. The APEC forum has since grown to include 21 member
economies and has over 100 formal and informal dialogues and meetings
annually. The forum offers member economies the opportunity to strengthen
ties with their Asia-Pacific neighbours. This year, Australia will once again
play host to this significant series of international meetings.
