Project Summary

APEC’s own statistics show that many of the barriers to women’s economic participation in the region are behind-the-border barriers of a legislative, regulatory or policy nature. While the PPWE has been actively considering these issues for some time, the EC - which works to improve institutional frameworks, regulations and government policies to support efficient functioning of markets and reduce behind-the-border barriers - has yet to consider specifically how structural reform can contribute to unlocking the full potential of women’s economic participation to promote inclusive and sustainable growth. 

A two-day public-private dialogue (PPD) is proposed to be held in Wellington, New Zealand, in September 2018. This is the first part of a two-part initiative, to be followed by an interactive workshop in February 2019. The PPD will seek to build a common understanding among key private sector representatives and government structural reform officials on how viewing structural reform through a gender lens could contribute to both APEC’s structural reform and inclusion agendas. The programme will seek to cover issues such as: what structural reform and gender means as a concept; how APEC members can structure their public institutions and processes to  address gender issues; good public and corporate governance with respect to gender; gender-neutral vs gender-responsive legislation, regulation and policy design, implementation and enforcement. Two case studies will be applied to put these topics in context.
