13:44 | Lima, Nov. 7.

President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski's agenda at APEC Summit in Viet Nam will start on Wednesday with a session on new frontiers in trade.

Peru's top official will join the event after arriving in Da Nang, host city of the 2017 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit.

The session is part of the program for APEC-CEO Summit and is expected to gather business leaders from each of the 21 APEC economies.

"New Frontiers in Trade" is a dialogue on the future path of trade liberalization – what issues need to be resolved and how trade agreements can promote inclusive growth.


Also, Mr. Kuczynski will hold an audience with Facebook's Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, prior to a meeting with APEC China Business Council officials.

Additionally, he is slated to meet with the leaders of China, Viet Nam, Canada and Australia.

The 25th Summit of Leaders of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum (APEC) and the APEC-Business Leaders' Summit (APEC-CEO Summit) will be held in the city of Da Nang this week. 

On this occasion, the Summit's motto will be: "Creating new dynamism, fostering a shared future." 

The leaders of the 21 APEC economies —as well as 10,000 delegates and more than 2,000 executives— will be present at the event.
