The Internet and the digital economy enable greater economic integration, more innovation, as well as robust, sustainable, and inclusive economic growth for the Asia-Pacific region. The APEC Framework for Securing the Digital Economy provides non-binding principles and strategic recommendations to inform member economies as they develop policy and regulatory frameworks to secure their digital economies and their digital futures.
