Therefore, in the next several days, leaders of APEC economies will gather in Da Nang city to discuss measures to find a new driving force for growth and regional economic connectivity. Deputy PM Minh also stated that human resources development is a priority of this year’s cooperation, as it is essential to increase productivity and prepare workforce for the future in the context of rapid scientific-technological development.

Regarding his part, Mr. Yoshida said APEC economies will achieve inclusive growth if they reduce inequality and create more jobs. He suggested APEC consider the establishment of an APEC labour forum, an independent consulting mechanism like the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC).
