Key trend and developments relating to trade and Investment Measures: DO FTAs Matter for Trade

Presented at the Ministers Responsible for Trade Meeting in May 2015, the theme section of the report briefly assessed the correlations between APEC members’ FTAs and exports. The preliminary results indicate that despite FTAs being considered as second-best option, FTAs have significant effect on trade. The effect of FTAs, however, depends on the size, and importantly, on the quality of the trade agreement. As for APEC’s trade and investment, the report reveals that export growth among APEC economies in 2014 was relatively robust, and FDI inflows into APEC continued to perform strongly with the APEC region remaining as the top destination for FDI.

testimonials

"I have attended many  supply chain related conferences but the 2013 Vietnam Supply Chain Congress in Ho Chi Minh City, 2-4 October, 2013, has been a very refreshing experience. The key value add has been a result of very well organized program, which allowed for much needed networking in the maturing Vietnam. Importantly there have been enough space given for sessions and discussions related to the business environment in Vietnam, current status and future prospects. I have enjoyed the panel discussions, focused on important topics, and managed in a full of energy way with many interactions between panelists and the audience.  On top of this the organization and all arrangements have been meticulous, the staff very friendly and helpful what resulted in a very comfortable experience. I am looking forward to the next year Congress.”
