Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Week brings together government officials and other stakeholders every two years for discussions on issues of importance to trade and investment policy making in the region. Drawing on the presence of senior policymakers from across the Asia-Pacific region, the week hosts a number of engaging events related to trade and investment policy making, covering areas such as trade facilitation, trade and investment agreements, science, technology and innovation (STI) policies and responsible business practices. The Fifth session of the ESCAP Committee on Trade and Investment (Invitation only) — the key platform for regional dialogue and intergovernmental collaboration on trade and investment — will convene its fifth session during the Week, from 31 October to 2 November 2017.
