The ministers discussed promoting trade and investment in a post-COVID-19 era.
"We hope that the outcome of this year's APEC trade ministers' meeting will play an important role in helping to determine the policy direction for the recovery and stimulation of regional economic growth in various areas in the post-COVID-19," said Thai Commerce Minister Jurin Laksanawisit.
The Thai government is hosting the meetings as APEC chairman in 2022.
