The APEC CEO Summit will take place in November. It is one of the activities encompassed by the APEC forum, which brings together the principal representatives of economic and political activity in Asia Pacific.
And among the principal guests there are various women who are either world leaders, top-level executives or expert speakers. In the political sphere confirmations of their visits to Chile have been received by Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand and Carrie Lam, Head of the Hong Kong government (who has for months been resisting massive protests demanding her resignation).
