HCMC – The 29th APEC Ministerial Meeting (AMM) lasted longer than originally planned but concluded successfully, Vietnam’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh told a press conference in Danang City on November 9. 

The AMM, co-chaired by Minh and Vietnamese Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Tuan Anh, began on Wednesday morning in the central city of Danang as part of the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week 2017. Attending the AMM were foreign and economic ministers of 21 APEC member economies and observer organizations.

Minh said the AMM proposed multiple cooperation initiatives, and addressed unsolved problems with growth and cooperation. A document to be presented to the APEC economic leaders late this week was also been completed after the meeting.

AMM delegates also approved of many practical initiatives relating to e-commerce, strategy for small and medium enterprises, food security plan for 2018-2020, and rural and urban development. In addition, they agreed on maintaining cooperation among members.

Tran Tuan Anh told the press conference that what was discussed and approved at the AMM would serve as inputs for the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting this weekend.

The AMM did not pass the Lima Declaration on the Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific (FTAAP) as it needs further discussion on content and priorities of each member, Anh noted.
