The first virtual media conference of APEC 2021 will happen on March 11, but time is running out for media to register.

Vangelis Vitalis, the Chair of the 2021 APEC Senior Officials’ Meetings, and Dr Rebecca Fatima Sta Maria, the APEC Secretariat’s Executive Director, will address domestic and international media representatives focusing on APEC’s priorities for the region as it responds to the economic impacts of COVID-19.

The deadline for media registration for the March 11 virtual media conference is Sunday, 7 March 2021. 

Senior officials will convene on 9-12 March virtually to track progress and plan for the forum to achieve the recently agreed Putrajaya Vision 2040 of an “an open, dynamic, resilient and peaceful Asia-Pacific community by 2040, for the prosperity of all our people and future generations". 

Media representatives who wish to attend APEC virtual media events, including the upcoming virtual media conference, need to be accredited. Registering now will provide accreditation for the entire year – accessing the various media conferences (for Senior Officials’, Ministers’ and Leaders’ meetings) and other briefings that will be held throughout 2021.
