President to join global leaders in 15th APEC meeting in Sydney

Manila (5 September) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is set to join global leaders in the 15th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders' Meeting on Sept. 8-9 to be held in Sydney, Australia.

While in Australia, the President looks forward to exchange notes with the other APEC Leaders on how to promote economic stability, ensure peace and security, and regional prosperity in the Asia-Pacific Region while dealing with the global challenge of climate change.

President Arroyo is expected to bring good news about the Philippine economy and the unwavering fight against terror to the APEC Forum. She will also share the country's experience in forging public-private sector partnerships for renewable energy and exploration of environment-friendly alternatives to oil, such as bio-fuels and natural gas.

"The President will be an active participant in discussions especially on climate change, given its impact on our country's weather patterns and effects on the agricultural sector," Press Secretary and Presidential Spokesman Ignacio R. Bunye said Wednesday.

President Arroyo is also expected to hold meetings with US President George Bush, Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi and other Leaders on the sidelines of the APEC Summit, and find time to meet the Filipino community in Australia as well as other Filipinos from all over the world who will be gathering in Sydney for a global meeting.

"She brings with her the people's hopes and aspirations for a robust economy that can draw vigor and strength from regional and bilateral economic partnerships," Bunye said.

President Arroyo will reaffirm support for the global multilateral trading system and join the call to explore every avenue to achieve the necessary breakthroughs in the WTO negotiations at the earliest opportunity.

At the same time, she will call for a strengthening and an expansion of APEC's economic and technical cooperation agenda, and argue for broader, more focused and more strategic capacity building activities among member economies.

In line with advancing regional prosperity and sustainable development, President Arroyo will express the Philippines' unwavering support for human security and its fight against all forms of terrorism. With the recent passage of the Human Security Act of 2007, the Philippines has a strengthened legal regime for investigating, prosecuting and bringing terrorists and their supporters who are captured in the Philippines to justice, thus contributing to regional and global efforts to combat terrorism.
