In 2023, the United States hosted APEC for the third time, under the theme of “Creating a Resilient and Sustainable Future for All,” to advance the Putrajaya Vision 2040 and the Aotearoa Plan of Action. Under the United States’ stewardship, APEC members focused on promoting an “interconnected, innovative, and inclusive” Asia-Pacific region, embracing collaborative policies that lead to shared prosperity and sustainable economic growth.

In 2024, Peru will steer APEC’s work toward greater economic and technical cooperation, promoting prosperity and well-being for all the people in the Asia-Pacific region. As APEC heads to Peru under the overarching theme of “Empower. Include. Grow,” member economies will advance a regional agenda with the following priorities:
1. Trade and investment for inclusive and interconnected growth
2. Innovation and digitalization to promote transition to the formal and global economy
3. Sustainable growth for resilient development
