Description

This report summarizes the workshop that was undertaken to examine the steps APEC and member economies can take to expand the CBPR System and to increase the establishment of Accountability Agents by increasing the understanding of the Accountability Agent criteria, studying various models for Accountability Agents – from private sector to government authorities – and discussing ways to enhance and mitigate costs of certification and of establishing Accountability Agents. The workshop was held in two session, with the first session held in Honolulu, Hawaii, where participants examined aspects of the Accountability Agent mechanism and developed recommendations for member economies to enhance the CBPR System. The second session was held at SOM3 in Puerto Varas, Chile, and focused on examining the recommendations developed from Session One.
