New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific Economic Decade
Keywords:Asia–Pacific, economic growth, trade, globalisation, APEC
The last decade has seen the Asia-Pacific region undergoing new patterns in economic development, driven by major changes in trade, capital and technology flows, together with demographic disruption. On top of that, the region is experiencing the resurgence of the Chinese economy, a defensive US response, climate change concerns, and the problems of Covid-19. This brings new worries about globalisation and challenges for New Zealand hosting APEC in 2021.
