This is a second revision of the APEC Guide to Investment Regimes ("Guide") .
The guide has been published since 1993 as the only consolidated collection of investment regimes in the APEC region which provides timely and reliable source of information primarily for business people (especially investors), and also for investment promotion agencies, government policy makers, academics, and regional and international organizations in the APEC and other regions. The Guide will assist investors in making sound investment decisions and policy makers in making consistent and coherent policy decisions.
This version is composed of information submitted by APEC member economies by responding to the Survey Questionnaires (Annex 1). While Russia's information has been added in this revision, some members' information were not available at the time of the publication and pages are kept blank but, will be included in the future revisions.
