The First APEC Senior Officials’ Meeting opens after various working groups and committee-level meetings were held in Clark and Subic Freeport Zones starting January 26.

Discussions of the working groups meetings focus on the four APEC 2015 priorities: advancing the Regional Economic Integration Agenda; fostering SMEs’ participation in regional and global markets; investing in human capital development; and building sustainable and resilient communities.

The Senior Officials will note all the recommendations made by these working groups as well as consider advancing initiatives for the APEC Committee on Trade and Industry, Economic Committee and SOM Committee on Ecotech.

Senior officials and delegates from the 21 APEC member economies pose for their family photo during the opening session of the two-day First Senior Officials’ Meeting (SOM1) being held at the Fontana Leisure Park Convention Center in Clark, Pampanga.
