Example text

In this way, despite the fact that the two institutions share the common objective of realizing a freer world trading system, they differ in many fundamental aspects. Hence it is natural that APEC and the WTO implement different measures for trade liberalization. It makes sense that APEC seeks a mutual and unilateral approach as opposed to GATT/WTO’s style. Consequently, the WTO can be regarded as a locus of negotiations and rule making whereas APEC functions as a consultative body. Even though the two institutions share a common objective, no close correlation or mutual cooperation has been shaped between APEC and the GATT/WTO.

22 For instance, although consensus was reached concerning the promotion of liberalization on the basis of the voluntarism principle in the EVSL consultation, the Japanese and United States’ conceptual interpretation of voluntarism differ in the extreme. 23 Most of the Asian members (China, Indonesia, Hong Kong, South Korea, Malaysia, The Philippines and Japan) emphasized the efficiency of this idea (interview with an APEC-related official of MITI (Japan), July 1995). 24 Besides the United States, the supporters of the CAP were Australia and New Zealand (interview with an APEC-related official of MITI (Japan), July 1995).

It does not involve the negotiation of legally binding treaties. It is premised on strong support for the WTO. It is open in that the process is market-driven rather than institutional-driven. And it is open in that other non-players, on the periphery of the region and elsewhere in the world economy, are free to join in the process by liberalising in the same way. (Drysdale 1997: 6. Italics by Drysdale) If liberalization within APEC is carried out strictly on the basis of open regionalism, preferential treatment that one member gives the other member economies will apply equally to outsiders as well.
