On China's role in APEC, Morrison said that when it became a member of APEC 20 years ago, China was seeking to know the international system. And now, China, like other members, has become an integral part of the organization.

"I think China has a lot to offer. China is a very large developing country. China's model of development is very attractive to some countries," he said.

"China has a lot to offer in the energy conservation area because we all recognize that China is still at an earlier stage of its industrialization," said Morrison.

Thought China's consumption of energy per unit of GDP is quite high, it will go down in the coming years, he said.

"China has a lot to contribute to the region and the world," said the PECC chief.

PECC is a unique tripartite partnership of senior individuals from business and industry, government, academic and other intellectual circles. It aims to serve as a regional forum for cooperation and policy coordination to promote economic development in the Asia-Pacific region

Established in 1980, PECC now has 26 Member Committees, including one associate member, and two institutional members. It is the only non-government official observer of APEC.Asia-Pacific to play greater role in leading the world: PECC chief
