The seminar focused on three key challenges facing APEC members in terms of cooperation on trade in health services;

  • Harnessing the linkages among the different modes of supplying trade in health services;
  • Fostering trade and cooperation among APEC economies in the area of health services; and,
  • Ensuring the integration of national health systems (public and private), in order for trade in health services to benefit marginalized sectors of society.
