Asia-Pacific trade and investment report 2013

The 2013 Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Report shows that while the gains created by growth have been significant, the majority of poor people in many Asia-Pacific countries have often not shared in this prosperity. Inclusive regional trade- and investment-led growth is yet to be fully realized, but the 2013 Report underscores that trade and investment continue to be important engines of Asia-Pacific growth. The Report also investigates the conditions for making trade and investment benefits more inclusive, outlining transmission channels through which gains from trade, trade facilitation, FDI, and related policies, could be directed into the reduction of poverty and inequality.
