The President, who belongs to Group 4 along with fellow APEC leaders from Russia, Korea, and Peru, discussed: “COVID-19 has had an acute, negative impact on the most vulnerable in our communities, including women, small businesses and indigenous people. ABAC believes that to safeguard the future, we must regain the ground that has been lost and unlock the full potential of these disadvantaged groups. At the same time, we face increasingly dangerous climate change and the need to embrace the transition to low-carbon economy. What tools should we be using to address these inclusion and sustainability challenges?”. KARL ALONZO/ PRESIDENTIAL PHOTO
