This past week, UHM hosted the 20th anniversary Northeast Asian Economic Forum conference and quite a few of our APEC interns contributed. You can see news coverage here:
I wanted to quickly share insights from our session. There is anticipation of APEC discussions on several regional trade agreements. In addition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), discussions are underway for a China, Japan, Korea (CJK) trade agreement. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is also deepening its interactions with partners in the region. The NEAEF resolution should be posted soon at http://www.neaef.org/news.html.
Graduate students Kanae Tokunaga, Tenzing and Olga Bogach Moulton were instrumental, as were Nai Yang Chang and Kyung Ri Lim.
