FY 2012/2013 Research Topic: A-4-01
APEC Joint Study on Possible Pathways to a Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific (FTAAP)


The purpose of this research project is to assess the current situation regarding the formation of an FTAAP (Free Trade Area of the Asia Pacific), and appropriate actions that should be taken by Japan. The APEC Study Centers Consortium (ASCC) Conference is held annually in the APEC host economy to provide an opportunity for scholars and researchers to discuss their research and also identify areas for regional cooperation. As a part of our research activities, we attended the ASCC2012 in Kazan, Russia, which was held on May 26 and 27, 2012.
