The United States is pleased to announce Honolulu, Palm Springs, Detroit, and Seattle as sites for the first clusters of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Senior Officials’ and Ministerial meetings during the U.S. host year in 2023.  The site of the November 2023 APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting will be announced later this year.  This will be the first time the United States has hosted APEC since 2011.

Spanning both sides of the Pacific, the 21 APEC member economies account for approximately 47 percent of global trade, and the region is the destination for more than 62 percent of U.S. goods exports.  Through engagement in APEC, the United States helps American companies do business and supports economic prosperity for our workers and our people; expands women’s participation in the economy and our broader economic inclusion goals; supports U.S. innovation and the digital economy; and promotes healthy, resilient, and sustainable economies, including by helping the region’s economies recover from the pandemic and supporting action to address the climate crisis.
