2013 Nov CNCPEC REI 2CNCPEC has organized a two-day symposium on the regional economic integration to conduct a comprehensive stocktaking of the various ongoing FTAs in the Asia-Pacific region. With contributions from several other PECC member committees, the speakers at the symposium compared the various regional trade arrangements, especially the "mega-RTAs," revisited the strategies of the region's active players, and touched upon the convergence theme, going over questions on how we could achieve an FTAAP, how the Asia-Pacific as a region can contribute to the WTO, and how APEC could play a better role in promoting the convergence.
