Vancouver, BC - September 30, 2013 - Story: Prime Minister Stephen Harper will travel to Bali, Indonesia from October 7-8 to attend the 25th APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting. In the context of continued global economic uncertainty, Prime Minister Harper will meet with the leaders of 20 other APEC economies to discuss efforts to promote free and open regional trade and investment. As the Canadian government has identified Asia as a significant economic priority, the Summit will be an opportunity to observe what progress has been made, and what challenges lie ahead in terms of Canada’s deepening trade and investment ties with the region, particularly with respect to the ongoing Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations.
