Beijing: Chinese President Xi Jinping on Sunday said efforts should be made to fulfil the Asia-Pacific dream of more economic vibrancy, free trade and investment opportunities in the region.

He was speaking at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) CEO Summit, which attracted over 1,500 businessmen from 21 APEC member economies and 17 other countries and regions, reported Xinhua.

"The development prospect of our region hinges on the decisions and actions we take today. We are duty-bound to create and fulfil an Asia-Pacific dream for our people," Xi he said.

He said the dream is about acting in the spirit of the Asia-Pacific community and out of a sense of shared destinies. He said it is about having more economic vibrancy, free trade and investment facilitation, better roads, and closer people-to-people exchanges.

In order to achieve this, the region should redouble efforts to forge a partnership of mutual trust, inclusiveness, win-win cooperation and jointly build an open economy, Xi said.
