BEIJING - President Hu Jintao left for Hawaii on Thursday to meet with fellow leaders in the Asia-Pacific region and discuss ways to ensure regional prosperity in the midst of world stagnation.

The annual meeting will bring China and other regional powers to the table with the United States, which has deemed the region to be a place of great interest in its economic and political policies.

The 19th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Leaders' Meeting, scheduled to take place on the weekend, will look closely at regional economic growth, integration, green growth, energy security and regulatory cooperation.

At the meetings, Hu will discuss China's positions on world economic governance, economic development in the Asia-Pacific region and the multilateral system of trade, the Foreign Ministry said.

He is also expected to hold meetings with leaders from other members of the organization, including US President Barack Obama, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda and Vietnam President Truong Tan Sang.
