Appendix 1

The APEC EVSL process: a consolidated chronology

19 November 1995

APEC Leaders endorse the Osaka Action Agenda. The OAA states 'APEC economies will identify industries in which the progressive reduction of tariffs (and non-tariff measures) may have positive impact on trade and economic growth in the Asia-Pacific region or for which there is regional industry support for early liberalisation' (Part One, Section C).

26-28 September 1996

The Quadrilateral Ministers Meeting held in Seattle. Canada, Japan, the United States and the EU agree to promote the ITA at the WTO Ministerial Conference in Singapore in December.

25 November 1996

APEC leaders, issuing their Declaration following their meeting in Subic, The Philippines, instruct their Ministers to 'identify sectors where early voluntary liberalisation would have a positive impact on trade, investment, and economic growth in the individual APEC economies as well as in the region, and submit to us their recommendations on how this can be achieved' (paragraph 8).

9-13 December 1996

ITA is finalized and signed by twenty-nine members at the WTO Ministerial Conference in Singapore.

8-10 May 1997

APEC Trade Ministers meet in Montreal. They instruct officials to undertake studies and report back to them by August on possible sectors for early liberalization, based on tariff and non-tariff dimensions, facilitation and Ecotech, and fullest possible private sector input, with a view to creating critical mass for stimulating broader sectoral action through the WTO.
