“Economic Crisis and Recovery: Enhancing Resilience, Structural Reform, and Freer Trade in the Asia-Pacific Region”

Date: 9 – 10 October 2009, Friday and Saturday
Venue: Orchard Ballroom, Orchard Hotel, Singapore

Synopsis:

The PECC Conference is being organised in at a time of great uncertainty brought about by the global economic crisis. In PECC’s tradition of bringing together the brightest minds from business, the academe, government and civil society to come together we believe that now, more than ever, there is an urgent need for us to come together and provide new ideas and thinking on the solutions to the multitude of problems we confront. The objective of the conference organized by PECC and supported by the Singapore National Committee for Pacific Economic Cooperation (SINCPEC) and the Institute of Policy Studies (IPS), Singapore, is to provide ideas and suggestions on the major issues that the leaders of the Asia-Pacific region will address when they convene in Singapore just a month later for the APEC summit. Invited speakers and participants include Ministers and officials from APEC governments, leading business representatives and thought-leaders from the Asia- Pacific region. We hope that this initiative from PECC supported by the Singapore National Committee for Pacific Economic Cooperation will continue through 2010 and 2011 in Japan and the United States, the next chairs of the APEC process.
