The Asia-Pacific is the second largest region in the world in terms of land area, which is equivalent to 20% of the world’s total. It became popular in late 1980s when its economies started to flourish, leading to the creation of the Asia-Pacific Economic Conference (APEC), a forum for 21 countries that aimed to enhance economic growth and prosperity in the region. Even with more than half of the world’s population and having 49 countries with diverse cultures and economies, the region has an uninterrupted growth, thanks to its relative political stability and maintenance of peace.
