Pacific Economic Cooperation Council
The Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (PECC) is a non-profit regional organisation dedicated to promoting cooperation between the economies of the Pacific Rim.
PECC was founded on the belief that the realization of the full potential of the Pacific Basin depends on enhanced economic cooperation based on free and open economic exchange and in a spirit of partnership, fairness and mutual respect.
The participants are mindful of the shared interest in promoting economic cooperation among the economies in the region to bring about greater economic and social benefits and well-being for the respective peoples and contribute to the stability, prosperity and progress of the entire region.
Participation in the PECC Process will depend on a commitment to economic cooperation in the Pacific. PECC participants, who have extensive economic activities in the Pacific, will seek to achieve increased, open regional economic cooperation and interaction, while recognising both the realities of, and the benefits accruing from, global interdependence and continuing to encourage increased economic cooperation and interaction with other nations and regions.
