An Environmental Technology Exhibition on the Internet

Humankind is now faced with many serious environmental problems. Some, such as global warming and ozone depletion, affect the entire earth. Others, such as air and water pollution, primarily affect local areas. Resolving these problems is especially critical for the APEC economies, which have seen substantial growth in recent years.

APEC Virtual Center for Environmental Technology Exchange (APEC-VC) is a strong and growing force in the Asia-Pacific region working to address these issues. This project helps APEC economies, municipalities, corporations and environment-related institutions share, via the Internet, information on environmental technologies. Much like an "environmental technology exhibition," APEC-VC disseminates a wide range of information related to protecting the earth.

APEC-VC was approved as a formal APEC joint research project at the Osaka APEC meeting in November 1995. In May 1996, Supporting Committee for APEC Virtual Center for Environmental Technology Exchange was established in Japan, and in April 1997 APEC-VC Japan began its full operation. Since 2013, secretariat services have been provided by APEC-VC Korea
