The self-funded project is expected to identify the need and interest among APEC economies in a closer collaboration on advanced economic policy modeling.

The first day of the conference included presentations and Q & A sessions to raise APEC members' awareness about the academic achievements in the area of economic policy modeling and the applicability of results. The second day provided an avenue for discussion of what can be APEC's role in building capacities in the area of producing and employing IOT in the foreseeable future.
