Speaking ahead of the forum, the Peruvian vice foreign minister said trade between China and Latin America is significantly important to the Asia-Pacific region.

"Our trade with Asia, especially with China, is very important. Chinese President Hu Jintao will visit our country during the APEC Forum. This is the first time that a Chinese President will visit Peru, it's very important."

The Concluding Senior Officials Meeting will be followed by a series of other meetings including the Ministerial Meeting and the Economic Leaders' Meeting.
