If they do not, it will be time for Russia and its APEC partners seriously to consider whether Russian membership can add value for either Russia or the regional institution. APEC has important achievements to its credit, but the contemporary moodin mid-1999 is one of disillusionment. The causes of this disappointment must be addressed urgently, or the process and commitments that have delivered positive results will disintegrate. < previous page page_15 next page > < previous page page_16 next page > Page 16 The central causes of disillusionment are the apparent irrelevance of APEC to the financial crisis, and the apparent ineffectiveness of APEC in contributing to expansion of trade and investment within the Asia Pacific.

The meetings of APEC Finance Ministers and the Manila Framework provide a suitable mechanism for APEC members now to do more that is of value through technical assistance in the financial sector. It would be helpful if the Finance Ministers’ meetings were integrated more tightly into other APEC processes. While the urgent requirements when the crisis struck were for actions that lay outside APEC’s comparative advantage, the established agenda of APEC is highly relevant to recovery from crisis. APEC has an important role to play, especially in Leaders’ meetings, in building support for the maintenance of open trade policies in the economies now experiencing exceptional deficits in current payments, notably the United States and Australia, and also in China, where large surpluses were corroded by the crisis.

APEC, including Leaders’ meetings, could review progress towards the Bogor free trade objective, building confidence in each country that it was not acting alone. Ultimately the sanctions were peer disapproval and recognition that some economies’ slow progress could reduce the chances of success in a process that was valuable to each participant. It was unlikely that the United States would initially be an enthusiastic participant, given its longstanding political commitment to reciprocity in trade agreements.
