The U.S. is taking its turn this year as host of APEC, the 21-member Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, whose membership extends from Russia to the South Pacific and from South America to China.

The official theme for 2023 is Creating a Resilient & Sustainable Future for All, and joining us this week to share his views about how the big job is coming along—among other things—is U.S. Senior Official for APEC Matt Murray. He’s in San Francisco to plan the APEC Economic Leaders Week, which will be descending on the City in November, and he sits down with us to give us a preview for this edition of the InAsia podcast.
