APEC 2021 senior officials will meet for the third time in August/September. 

Over 26 days, hundreds of virtual meetings will be held attended by approximately 3000 government officials from the 21 APEC economies. Their focus will be implementing policies made at Ministers’ meetings relating to a variety of issues, including COVID recovery, trade, food security, sustainability, indigenous inclusion, and digital, and progressing the Implementation Plan for the Putrajaya Vision 2040 in readiness for Leaders’ Week in early November.

This series of SOM3 meetings will conclude with a two-day plenary session on 2 and 3 September, chaired by APEC 2021 SOM Chair Vangelis Vitalis.
