SBY at APEC Summit: the 21st century belongs to Asia Pacific

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono stated during his speech before the APEC CEO Summit in Honolulu, Hawaii today that the 21st century belongs to the Asia Pacific region.
Yudhoyono added that as a region linking four continents, Asia, Australia and North and South America, the Asia Pacific region could play a significant role in terms of identifying supporting factors for peace and welfare.
“The Asia Pacific region must play significant roles in determining economic growth that is sustainable, balanced and inclusive,” he said Saturday evening in Hawaii, Sunday morning Indonesia time, reported.
He suggested that each country should consolidate their own internal affairs in order to embrace more complex international roles in the future.
