He highlighted the outstanding results of APEC Economics Leaders’ Week 2017 in Da Nang. With the total of over 11,000 participants, this is one of the most attended APEC Economics Leaders’ Week, including 4,500 delegate members from APEC member economies, 4,000 businesses, and nearly 3,000 journalists.

Especially, economic leaders of all 21 APEC were present at the event. This is the first time Vietnam has organized a regional high-level activity in a city outside of the capital.

Deputy Minister Bui Thanh Son noted that, with the theme “Creating New Dynamism, Fostering A Shared Future”, the results of APEC cooperation in 2017 were reflected through eight sectorial, ministerial documents ratified by APEC economic leaders, in which the two most important are Da Nang Declaration and the 29th APEC Ministerial Meeting Joint Statement. These achievements showed the strong commitment of APEC member economies in working towards the core goals and values of APEC.

He expressed his gratitude to the close support and cooperation of member economies, and assistance of representative bodies of member economies in Ha Noi as well as international organizations during the preparation process towards the Economic Leaders’ Week, contributing to Vietnam's achievement of these important results.
