APEC Statement on Promoting the Use of Interoperable Global Data Standards

In our 2013 declaration, we recognised the contribution that global data standards can make to enhancing supply chain effiency, and encouraged officials to explore what more can be done to facilitate mutual compatibility amongst data standards frameworks, and the compatibility of economies' framEworks with the use of global data standards. We instruct officials to further advance work on global data standards by developing pilot projects with the participation of the private sector. We also encourage officials to establish a set of policy-based principles or recommendation which could provide reference for future initiatives on global data standards in APEC economies.
