SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement after San Francisco was announced as the host city for the 2023 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders Meeting, the premier Asia-Pacific economic summit.
“We are thrilled to once again be the host state for an historic international summit. There is no better place in the nation to host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit than California – the world’s soon-to-be fourth largest economy. San Francisco is both the birthplace of the United Nations as well as a hub for innovation, that boasts deep cultural and economic ties with the Asia-Pacific region. I join San Francisco in welcoming world leaders to the Golden State next year with open arms.”
