Delegates at the symposium (Photo: VNA) HCM City (VNA) – Growth cannot be sustainable unless it is economically, financially and socially inclusive, APEC officials said at a symposium in Ho Chi Minh City on August 28. In his opening remarks at the “Symposium on Promoting Economic, Financial and Social Inclusion in APEC”, Permanent Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Vietnam Bui Thanh Son, who is also APEC 2017 SOM Chair, said that  economic inclusion provides access to economic opportunity for all members of society to meaningfully participate in the economic life of their economy as employers, entrepreneurs, consumers and citizens. Financial inclusion provides access to useful and affordable financial products and services that meet their needs, such as transactions, payments, savings, credit and insurance, which are delivered in a responsible and sustainable way, he said.   [APEC economies share experience in engaging in RTAs/FTAs] Meanwhile, social inclusion is the process of improving the terms for individuals and groups to take part in society. Social inclusion aims to empower all members of society to take advantage of burgeoning global opportunities and enhance equity, he added. According to the Deputy Minister, equal attention should be paid to three dimensions of economic, financial and social inclusion. Effectiveness of each dimension would be reduced if the other two are not keeping pace. Conversely, enhanced effectiveness of one dimension will feed into the other two. It is therefore imperative for APEC to take a strategic and holistic approach to inclusion. …... [read more]

Speaking with Vietnam News Agency reporters, Pyzhikov Nikita, a delegate from Russia, said the FTAAP must be a standard and transparent agreement. “To ensure that the agreement will be transparent, we should work together in establishing a framework of this agreement,” he said, underlining the need to organise more similar events to clarify the role of each party in the realisation of the FTAAP.  Tang Guoquiang, International Co-Chair of the Pacific Economic Cooperation Chair, said the FTAAP plays an important role in economic development, trade and investment facilitation in Asia-Pacific, which has been affirmed in many research studies and reports.  Lauding Vietnam’s rapid economic growth rate, he said Vietnam is a good example in the Asia-Pacific region.
