The Chair of the 2007 APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting, Australia's Prime Minister John Howard, has written to the leaders of APEC's other 20 economies inviting them to this year's APEC Economic Leaders Meeting and outlining his intention to make clean development and climate change a key topic for discussion in Sydney.

"The economies of APEC already account for 60 per cent of global energy demand and include the world's four largest energy consumers," Mr. Howard said.

"Energy demand across APEC is projected to double by 2030 (based on 2002 levels).

"Last year in Hanoi leaders instructed ministers to report in Sydney on ways APEC might respond to the challenge of meeting rapidly growing energy demands while minimising environmental effects. We now need to give practical effect to that instruction.

"Already many APEC economies are engaged in a range of joint initiatives in areas such as clean coal technology, renewable energy and energy efficiency aimed at practical outcomes on climate change.

This also includes the Global Initiative on Forests and Climate I announced on 29 March.

"We now have an opportunity to build on this cooperation and ensure that broader Asia-Pacific perspectives on climate change and the role of our economies are given full voice in shaping the relevant international frameworks into the future."
