Today, we have had thorough and fruitful discussions on the meeting’s theme and three major topics and exchanged views on the vision of Asia-Pacific development and the future direction of APEC cooperation. As a result, we have reached extensive and important consensus. Now I wish to make a brief summary of our discussions.
– We have reviewed the achievements and valuable experience of the APEC in its history of 25 years and discussed the vision and direction for the long-term development of the Asia-Pacific. We resolve to build on past success to move ahead. We agree to, in the spirit of mutual trust, inclusiveness, cooperation and mutual benefit, shape the future through Asia-Pacific partnership and build an open economy in the Asia-Pacific featuring innovative development, interconnected growth and shared interest in a dedicated effort to fulfill the dream of an Asia-Pacific that delivers growth, prosperity and progress to all.
– We are determined to strengthen Asia-Pacific partnership and jointly shape future development, tackle global challenges, build cooperation platforms and pursue interconnected growth. We have adopted two outcome documents: the Beijing Agenda for an Integrated, Innovative and Interconnected Asia-Pacific – the 22nd APEC Economic Leaders’ Declaration and Shaping the Future through Asia-Pacific Partnership – Statement on the 25th Anniversary of APEC. The two documents lay out the direction, targets and measures for Asia-Pacific economic cooperation.
