Description

The Bogor Goals Progress Reports use mostly qualitative information to describe the main achievements and shortcomings by APEC member economies, in the areas listed under the 1995 Osaka Action Plan and new areas that acquired relevance in recent years due to the changing trade policy environment.

In general, the analysis of the information shows that APEC member economies are moving in the right direction, as progress has been achieved in all areas since the previous assessment conducted in 2010. Nevertheless, there is room for improvement as more work can be done. Efforts in trade liberalization have been significant, but uneven across sectors and non-tariff measures still remain. Trade facilitation, services and investment are becoming relevant areas in the pursuit to improve business conditions.
