An exhibition opened at Thailand’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, dedicated to the forthcoming APEC forum in November
An exhibition devoted to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, whose leadership meeting will be held on November 18-19 in Bangkok, opened Tuesday at the country’s main airport, Suvarnabhumi. It will be open until Dec. 3, thus Thai authorities hope to draw more public attention to the significance of the upcoming event in November.
The installation, located on the fourth floor of the international terminal, consists of three colorful doors with inscriptions symbolizing the concepts promoted by Thailand within APEC: Open – facilitating trade and investment, Connect – restoring all connections and Balance – promoting sustainable and inclusive growth. Behind each door are screens that broadcast videos related to each concept.
APEC consists of 19 countries and two territories. They include 12 founding members: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and the United States. Other members are China (joined in 1991), Mexico and Papua New Guinea (1993), Chile (1994), Russia, Vietnam and Peru (1998). In 1991, two Chinese territories joined APEC: Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Thailand took over the chairmanship of organizing the APEC summit in 2022 from New Zealand and will hand it over to the United States.
