(POSTPONED) APEC IN 2020 WITH DR. REBECCA FATIMA STA MARIA

Tuesday, April 7 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

$25.00

This event has been postponed.

Synopsis:

Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) turned 30 in 2019. Formed to promote free and open trade and investment, APEC has grown to 21 member economies spanning both sides of the Pacific Ocean. Known as the Bogor Goals, 2020 is another major milestone for APEC as it marks the self-imposed deadline to achieve free and open trade and investment by further reducing barriers to trade and investment and by promoting the free flow of goods, services and capital. This year, APEC will review the region’s progress towards achieving the Bogor Goals and will push ahead with its agenda of inclusion and sustainability.

Join AmCham as we host Dr Rebecca Fatima Sta Maria, the Executive Director of the APEC Secretariat, in an intimate fireside chat that looks at APEC’s achievements thus far, and explains how business can help APEC achieve its drive to build a dynamic and harmonious Asia-Pacific community.

Following the fireside chat, there will be a reception with light bites.

 

About the Speaker:

Dr Rebecca Fatima Sta Maria
Executive Director
APEC Secretariat

Tan Sri Datuk Rebecca Fatima Sta Maria is the executive director of the APEC Secretariat based in Singapore, which serves as advisory body, implementation arm and custodian of institutional memory for the 21 member economies that make up the APEC forum. 

Dr Sta Maria was a top-level Malaysian civil servant, trade negotiator and academic.She was the Secretary-General of the Malaysian Ministry of International Trade and Investment from 2010 to 2016, where she oversaw the formulation of Malaysia’s international trade policies and positions and often took the lead in their implementation as chief negotiator for bilateral and regional free trade agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership. 

Dr Sta Maria played an integral role in Malaysia’s participation in multilateral forums such as APEC, where she often represented her economy during the APEC Ministers’ Responsible for Trade Meetings and the Small and Medium Enterprises Ministerial Meetings. 

In the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Dr Sta Maria chaired the body that drafted the ASEAN Economic Community 2015 Blueprint as well as the ASEAN Economic Community 2025 Blueprint.

An accomplished academic and writer, Dr Sta Maria’s scholarship has been recognized through awards from the American Academy of Human Resource Development and from the University of Georgia. In 2017, she authored a book about her personal slice of Malaysian heritage and cuisine, called The Smell of Home. 

Before 2010, the position of executive director of the APEC Secretariat rotated yearly among officials assigned by the incumbent host economy. Starting in 2010, the appointment was opened to applications from highly qualified professionals who will, when appointed, lead the Secretariat in fixed three-year terms with an option to renew. 

Dr Sta Maria is the first woman executive director of the APEC Secretariat.
