He also moderated the first session of the APEC CEO Summit on “Encouraging SMEs’ access to finance”, participated in the APEC Ministers’ meeting and chaired a working lunch with Finance Ministers and key ABAC members on "Public - Private Partnerships and the development of the APEC region's financial system".

In the meetings, the Ministers approved ABAC’s proposal to develop an Asia-Pacific Financial Forum and further encourage regional financial market integration. A Symposium will be held in Sydney in early 2013 to discuss the way forward.

The APEC forum is where business executives mix with political leaders to share views on the regional economy.
