APEC in Charts was launched by the APEC Policy Support Unit in 2013 to provide a graphical overview of the APEC region’s economic, trade, investment and policy-related performance. This year’s issue is significant as 2014 marks 25 years since the founding of APEC.

Established in 1989, the mission of APEC is to promote economic growth and prosperity for the region and to strengthen the Asia-Pacific community. In order to trace the evolution of APEC over the years, the APEC Policy Support Unit uses data from 1989, whenever possible, to the most recent data available, to show the progress APEC has made in terms of its economic, trade, investment, social and policy goals.
