APEC 2018 Taskforce

Economy will flourish if people are healthy

A country’s economy will flourish if its people are healthy.

These sentiments were shared by Health Department’s Branch Manager for Policy, Planning and Lead planner for the APEC 2018 Taskforce, Agnes Pawiong.

While business, trade and economic growth is expected to dominate discussions during the APEC Summit, other players vital for economic growth will be equally discussed.

Amongst these, health is one sector that will bring forth policies focused to the discussion table for the 21 economies to deliberate on.
