APEC pushes for the liberalization and facilitation of trade and investment in the Asia-Pacific in the lead up to 2020

While we are approaching the deadline, there remains a considerable lag of full trade and investment liberalization. Thus, the host economy of 2019, Chile, calls for a “final push” to reach the Bogor Goals, with the priority on service trade.
