upcoming ministerial meeting of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum to be held from Nov. 17-18 in Lima, Peru, Minister of Economic Affairs Lee Chih-kung (李世光) said on Thursday.

Minister Lee, who will co-head the Taiwan delegation to the annual APEC meeting with Minister Chen Tain-jy (陳添枝) from the National Development Council, said that no meetings have been arranged with the Chinese delegation on the sideline of the APEC conference.
