APEC aims to enhance sustainability, inclusion

Stakeholders and officials from the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) are exploring new business practices and financing as pathways to sustainable economic growth in the region.

Thailand’s Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs Thani Thongphakdi said that the stakes are high for the region in terms of achieving sustainable economic growth.
