Suzanne Clark Inaugurated as Its CEO in March 2021
WASHINGTON, DC. — The US Chamber of Commerce on June 17, 2021 called on the Biden-Harris Administration to host the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in 2023. The United States last hosted the once-annual meetings in 2011 in Honolulu. “The Administration’s interest in re-engaging in regional and multilateral forums is welcomed and encouraging,” said Myron Brilliant, Executive Vice President and Head of International of the US Chamber of Commerce. “The United States has a golden opportunity to further demonstrate America is back by re-engaging and enhancing US economic leadership in the Indo-Pacific through a commitment to host APEC in 2023.” “If the US is fully engaged, APEC can be a constructive and pragmatic forum for countries to address economic challenges and to forge a consensus on issues of common concern and importance” Brilliant said. “As chair, the United States would be well-positioned to set the bar for the APEC meeting and ensure it’s success and could more effectively drive a robust policy agenda including around climate, supply chains and digital trade”. APEC meetings involve trade and economic officials from all 21 member economies, including meetings at the head of government level. New Zealand is the APEC host this year, and Thailand will host in 2022.
