FTAAP - Charting A Pathway For Trade in Turbulent Times
Tuesday 2 May 2023
1100 - 1300 AEST
The aim of the dialogue is to advance APEC thinking on the concept of a Free Trade Area of the Asia Pacific (FTAAP) and how it can contribute to inclusive growth, economic integration, stability and cooperation in the region.
The dialogue will discuss the PECC FTAAP Signature Project. It is intended to share perspectives on how the Project can best add value, how PECC can advance work on the issue and why we should revisit the FTAAP concept now given developments in the region. The dialogue will also discuss the selection of specific issues on which PECC could focus initially to advance the FTAAP agenda.
