APEC Papua New Guinea 2018 is the year-long hosting of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meetings in Papua New Guinea.[1]

It wil be the first time Papua New Guinea is hosting the APEC meetings.[2] Australia is providing a quarter to a third of the cost to host the meetings and will also help with logistics and security.[1][3]


Economic Leaders' Meeting[edit]


This will be the first APEC meeting for Chilean President Sebastián Piñera, Peruvian President Martín Vizcarra and Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad since their inaugurations on 11 March 2018, 23 March 2018 and 10 May 2018, respectively; Mohamad had previously attended multiple APEC meetings in his first term as prime minister. It will be also the last APEC meeting for Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto following the 2018 Mexican general election.

  5. ^ Due to the complexities of the relations between it and the People's Republic of China, the Republic of China (ROC or "Taiwan") is not represented under its official name "Republic of China" or as "Taiwan". Instead, it participates in APEC under the name "Chinese Taipei". The President of the Republic of China does not attend the annual APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting in person. Instead, it is generally represented by a ministerial-level official responsible for economic affairs or someone designated by the president. See List of Chinese Taipei Representatives to APEC.
