BANGKOK - Leaders of 21 Pacific Rim economies succeeded in salvaging some relevance to their gathering - the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit - by coming to the rescue of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and by laying out a blueprint to take on "transnational terrorist groups".
To combat transnational terrorism, for instance, the Bangkok Declaration stated that the APEC member economies had agreed to adopt strict domestic export controls, to secure stockpiles and to take domestic action to "regulate the production, transfer and brokering" of man-portable missiles, such as shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles.
In reference to the WTO, the Bangkok Declaration stated that APEC "reaffirmed the primacy of the multilateral trading system" and agreed to support free-trade talks shaped by the Doha Development Agenda, which was supposed to enable developing countries to gain a secure foothold in the world economy.
