The theme of 2014 APEC is "Shaping the Future through Asia-Pacific Partnership". With the close cooperation and concerted efforts of APEC members and with the preparatory work of the senior officials' meetings and ministerial meetings, APEC members have developed extensive and in-depth consensus on Advancing Regional Economic Integration, Promoting Innovative Development, Economic Reform and Growth, and Strengthening Comprehensive Connectivity and Infrastructure Development. The Leaders' Week will be the high point for 2014 APEC China Year, and would bear great expectations of the APEC community for fruitful results.
