Beginning in the 1996 APEC CEO Summit provides an opportunity for business leaders in the Asia-Pacific region to engage in discussions with APEC Economic Leaders, policy makers, academia and other CEOs on issues facing the region. The summit was held in the APEC host economy just prior to the annual APEC Leaders Meeting 'and is an example of APEC efforts to promote public-private sector dialogue and cooperation.

The APEC CEO Summit 2012 was held on 7-8 September in Vladivostok, Russia under the theme "Addressing Challenges .. Expanding Possibilities" The 2012 Summit brought together leaders of APEC economies and regional business and community leaders for a global discussion on various issues including regional economic integration , supply chain connectivity; food, energy and water security, education, technology, human resource development, and the role of women in the economy.

It is a great honour for Indonesia to once again play host to APEC. The Summit takes place 19 years on from the Bogor Goals, in a world of increasing uncertainty, yet at a time where emerging Indonesia enjoys unprecedented economic and political stability. Our Summit's theme of 'Towards Resilience and Growth: Reshaping Priorities for Global Economy' aims to provide a platform to engage in enriching strategic discussions to chart a new way forward. This time of challenge should bring our economies together to discuss how to increase trade and investment flows and achieve the aim of shared development and common prosperity.

The Summit will feature the APEC Leaders - several will be new or newly elected, CEOs of global corporations and innovative thinkers in an interactive engaging format. We seek your views on strengthening and sustaining the global economy and taking part in mapping out the future direction of our region.

We also invite you to enjoy the island of Bali, but more importantly to discover Indonesia and the abundant opportunities that our economy on the rise presents. In 20 years' time we are projected to be the 7th largest economy in the world, so make it your goal to join us at the APEC CEO Summit 2013.
