Xi has just wrapped up his visit in Antalya, Turkey, where he attended the 10th summit of G20. In Manila, Xi will attend and address the APEC CEO Summit, and he will attend the APEC Business Advisory Council Dialogue, the leaders' welcome banquet, as well as the economic leaders' meeting and a luncheon.

Main priorities discussed in this year's APEC meeting are expected to be enhancing regional economic integration; fostering micro, small and medium enterprise participation in regional and global markets; investing in human capital development; and building sustainable and resilient communities.
