WASHINGTON - China and the United States will both make efforts to promote regional integration and green growth at this week's annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in Honolulu, Hawaii, trade experts said.

But the world's two largest economies differ in their approaches toward achieving regional integration.

The host country will try to achieve progress at the Hawaii meeting in establishing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), while China hopes that the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)+3 (China, Japan and South Korea) can take a leading role.

The TPP is being negotiated by the US, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.

APEC, established in 1989, is a forum for 21 Pacific Rim economies to cooperate on regional trade and investment issues.

The Hawaii meeting is the first time the US has hosted an APEC forum since the meeting on Blake Island, Washington State, in 1993.
