"APEC Ministers Responsible for Trade met in Sapporo, Japan 5-6 June 2010 to discuss the theme for APEC 2010 Change and Action," says HANK LIM. "The theme stems from the idea that, amid changing global circumstances, APEC should conceptualise the necessary changes and translate them into concrete actions so that it continues to play an important and relevant role. The discussions centres on the following priorities: (1). Assessing the achievement of the Bogor Goals; (2). Setting the future direction for APEC'w work to strengthen regional economic integration; (3) Formulating a regional growth strategy and (4) Promoting human security to ensure secure and resilient economies. It seems formulating a regional growth strategy that is balanced, imclusive, sustainable, innovative and secure would have along-lasting implications to APEC beyond the Bogor Goals."
