APEC 2010 Summit:  “Seeking Prosperity After Crisis”

Tuesday,  30 November 2010

Wendy Cutler, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Japan, Korea and APEC Affairs; Robert Hormats, Under Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Agricultural Affairs; and Kurt Tong, U.S. Senior Official at APEC reviewed the themes and outcomes of the annual APEC Summit, which took place November 12-13 in Yokohama, Japan.  Themes included accelerating regional economic integration and promoting a new, sustainable growth model for the Asia-Pacific region.  The speakers also explored how these issues will be carried forward during the U.S. hosting of APEC in September 2011. Several business executives also discussed key private sector initiatives being developed to support the upcoming U.S. meeting. Monica Whaley, President of the National Center for APEC, moderated the discussion.
 
This seminar was co-sponsored with the U.S. National Center for APEC and the U.S. APEC Business Coalition, and the Asia Society.
