China's post-COVID-19 economic recovery could help accelerate global economic recovery, said Jorge Sahd, the director of the Center for International Studies at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (CEIUC). He also said the economies of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, or APEC, must resume their sense of global responsibility and cooperate to face challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change. APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting will be virtually held on Nov. 20, when the Post-2020 Vision is expected to be officially endorsed. APEC is a regional economic forum established in 1989 to leverage the growing interdependence of the Asia-Pacific. Its 21 members aim to create greater prosperity for the people of the region by promoting balanced, inclusive, sustainable, innovative and secure growth and by accelerating regional economic integration.
