In Singapore, Chile presents the priorities for its year hosting APEC in 2019
Chile’s Vice Minister of Trade, Rodrigo Yáñez, accompanied by the Executive Secretary for APEC Chile 2019, Paulina Nazal, traveled to Singapore to hold high-level meetings in order to raise awareness of the priorities and preparations for APEC Chile 2019.
Under the slogan "Connecting People, Building the Future" and bearing in mind the principles of inclusive, integral and sustainable economic growth, the agenda defined by Chile includes themes such as the digital economy and services, connectivity, women and economic growth.
It should be noted that until now no economy has put gender at the heart of the agenda during its year hosting APEC and Chile is taking a leading regional role in discussions on this matter.
