In the spirit of multilateralism, APEC Energy Forum 2022 focuses on low-carbon development and makes its mark to open the world economy, thus promoting global multilateral cooperation. The forum covers in-depth discussions on energy transition, technology innovation, climate finance, and biodiversity.
