Transport Policy within APEC

This chapter reviews the ongoing work program on transport policy that has been undertaken by the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). The significance of transport for APEC’s mission is the starting point of the chapter. The ways in which the members work cooperatively within APEC on transport policy questions are also reviewed, but the chapter does not provide a detailed review of transport policy in each of these economies. Following a review of some current transport sector challenges, the structure of APEC and the manner in which it operates will be examined in the chapter. APEC’s work on transport policy is the topics of the next section and the projects are grouped according to classification commonly used by APEC, and comments are offered on the mix of projects, and their relative significance. These points are illustrated by a short review of specific collective projects and some results to date. The chapter concludes with comments on the importance of APEC’s work on transport policy, the significance of that work for APEC’s own agenda, and on the requirements for greater effectiveness of APEC’s work on transport policy.
