The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade today released the 1996 issue
of the publication The APEC Region, Trade and Investment on the eve
of the APEC conference in the Philippines. This publication provides vital
information on trade and investment relationships in the APEC region and
between APEC and the rest of the world.
The APEC Region, Trade and Investment highlights the continuing internal
concentration of trade among APEC economies that account for 46 per cent
of world trade and over half the world's GDP. The publication also compares
major economic indicators of each of the APEC members, including data on
real GDP and GDP per capita.
