APEC 2021 LIVE with Business brings together leading business figures and thought leaders as we navigate a recovery from COVID-19, and ask – where to from here?

While we stare down one of the biggest economic challenges of our generation, business has an opportunity to look afresh at how it rises to these challenges.  APEC 2021 LIVE with Business will set the scene for the big conversations at this year’s CEO Summit.  

APEC 2021 LIVE with Business will be a five-part series looking at the future of business and how we can do business better.   Conversations will focus on: recovering sustainably, food security, green energy, inclusive business and a digital future of work.
