The APEC Peru 2008 Summit is Held in Lima

The APEC Peru 2008 summit was the twentieth annual gather of APEC leaders.

The meet was primarily a series of political-economic meetings, which were held in Peru between the 21 members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), although business leaders of the region also met before the summit officially began. Leaders from all the member countries met from November 22 to the 23 2008 in the capital city of Lima.

The 21-members account for 60 percent of the world's gross domestic product.

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit and the Latin America, the Caribbean and the European Union Summit were hosted by the city of Lima.
