APEC in Charts 2014

APEC in Charts was launched by the APEC Policy Support Unit in 2013 to provide a graphical overview of the APEC region’s economic, trade, investment and policy-related performance. This year’s issue is significant as 2014 marks 25 years since the founding of APEC. Established in 1989, the mission of APEC is to promote economic growth and prosperity for the region and to strengthen the Asia-Pacific community. In order to trace the evolution of APEC over the years, the APEC Policy Support Unit uses data from 1989, whenever possible, to the most recent data available, to show the progress APEC has made in terms of its economic, trade, investment, social and policy goals.


“I attended the 2013 Vietnam Supply Chain Congress in Ho Chi Minh City, 2-4 October, 2013, and what a revelation it was. Without a doubt this was one of the best organized conferences I have ever had the pleasure of attending. The content was leading edge; the speakers were universally excellent, as were the panel discussions. And finally, all the administrative/support arrangements and corresponding facilities and catering  were first class as well. This was a full suite in the best traditions of supply chain conferences. I look forward very much to being involved again in some capacity in the 2014 Congress. Vietnam is setting the pace in Asia.”
