Description

This report presents the results of an assessment of the APEC Human Resources Development Working Group using data from sources like the APEC meeting database, as well as direct exchanges with the APEC Secretariat. 

The report draws simple conclusions based on descriptive statistics, or highlights cases where use of statistics (like averages) would be uninformative (for instance, due to very small sample size). The key findings are: HRDWG has all of its basic documents in place. All economies belong to the forum. Meeting attendance is strong, averaging just over 80% of the total number of member economies. Participation by female delegates is very strong: they account for, on average, nearly 55% of the total number of delegates at recent HRDWG meetings.
