Press Releases


13 November 2006 (Hong Kong, China) A recent report on the state of the Asia Pacific region predicts a modest economic slowdown and warns that APEC is at risk of becoming irrelevant.
16 June 2006 (Singapore) Pacific Rim economies have continued to show surprising robustness in the face of serious systemic risks to growth, says the June economic update from the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council. The impact of high oil prices and uncertainty over exchange rates has been muted thus far.
