BEIJING - The 21 members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) are expected to renew their endeavors to advance economic growth and integration at the upcoming Economic Leaders' Meeting in Lima, Peru.

Maintaining continuity in the APEC agenda while seeking greater consensus, leaders will gather this month to discuss regional economic integration, the Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific (FTAAP), connectivity and service sector cooperation.

"In the long term, the Lima meeting should push forward economic integration in the Asia-Pacific region," said Wu Hongying, director of the Latin America office of the China Institute of Contemporary International Relations.

China, always committed to the APEC mechanism and the cooperation that continues to grow under it, is expected to contribute further at the upcoming event.

"China has, at various international meetings, injected vitality to the regional cooperation agenda," said Liu Chenyang, director of the APEC research center at Nankai University.
