APEC Economies At Centre Of Global Economic Future
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov 15 (NNN-XINHUA) – The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) economies, are “at the centre of the global economy and our world’s economic future,” U.S. Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, told reporters at a press conference, following the conclusion of the APEC Finance Ministers’ Meeting.
“Cooperation across APEC economies is also key to tackling the challenges we all face, including the urgent threat of climate change,” she said.
The U.S. treasury secretary also told reporters that APEC finance ministers talked about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict’s risk to the global economic outlook.
“We’ve not really seen yet much economic impact from what’s happening, but we are concerned and broadly view it as critical not to see the conflict expand,” she said.
