This research report was developed based upon the discussions held during the workshop in May 2021, with the participation of policymakers, academia, the business community and international organizations. It argues the possible role to be played by bilateral investment treaties and investment provisions in FTAs/EPAs to foster cross-border investment and establish resilient supply chains in the Asia-Pacific region, by highlighting the importance of monitoring the area during and after the COVID-19 crisis, with the aim of pursuing the APEC FTAAP agenda.
