Vietnamese delegates partook in discussions and contributed to the compilation of dossiers for the 30th meeting of APEC ministers of foreign affairs and economy. At the meeting, APEC senior officials applauded the 2017 APEC Economic Leaders’ Week in the central city of Danang of Vietnam for keeping up the momentum of regional economic cooperation and connectivity, and providing motivation for trade liberalization, inflow and outflow investment, and sustainable and inclusive growth in the Asia-Pacific. They reviewed the implementation of the results of the 2017 APEC, notably in promoting the inclusive economic, financial, social, and human resources development in the digital era, e-commerce, and support for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)’s participation in the global value chains, along with the construction of the post-2020 APEC Vision. They also discussed priorities of the 2018 APEC, themed “Harnessing Inclusive Opportunities, Embracing the Digital Future”.
