Project Summary

Singapore will fully fund a project to measure the level of S&C infrastructure across APEC member economies. The project, to be led by APEC Policy Support Unit, aims to develop a framework that can help APEC member economies identify strengths and areas for improvement in their S&C infrastructure in order to support the growth of industry and enterprises. The framework could cover the pillars of S&C infrastructure such as: standardisation, accreditation, conformity assessment, metrology, and trade facilitation.

The project will consist of three phases:

1) A quick survey to understand the indicators currently being collected and monitored by APEC member economies and SRBs;

2) A detailed survey for all APEC member economies with a focus on collecting relevant data concerning S&C infrastructure; and

3) In-depth case studies for up to six selected economies.

The results of the study would help APEC member economies to identify specific requirements, assistance and/or activities for technical infrastructure development, and guide SCSC and individual APEC economies in developing strategy and initiatives for upgrading, harmonisation, and reform, as appropriate. The study could also lead to further development and research into S&C, especially its importance for trade facilitation, Global Value Chains (GCVs), and MSMEs.
