Green growth, integration to top Hawaii APEC agenda (2)

The U.S. is also hoping to persuade other Asia-Pacific economies to agree to a deal to tear down barriers to the trade of environmental goods and services. But some experts don't think blockbuster agreements on green growth will be reached during the meeting.

On Monday, China's Assistant Foreign Minister Wu Hailong said "APEC members generally hold positive attitudes toward U.S. proposals in various fields such as green growth, innovation policy. But some of the U.S.'s expected outcomes are beyond the capacity of the developing members, and they have expressed their difficulties and concerns."

He said China expects the APEC members to comprehensively promote regional trade and investment liberalization, and all member states should fulfill their commitments and oppose all forms of trade protectionism.

Yu Jianhua, Chinese assistant commerce minister, called for pushing the development of a green economy in the region steadily as APEC members differ sharply in their basis, conditions and levels.

It is widely believed that the U.S. will advance the the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), an Asia-Pacific regional trade agreement being negotiated among the United States and eight other partners, namely Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.
