Project Summary

The APEC Services Competitive Roadmap (2016-2025) identifies an APEC-wide action to increase the participation of MSMEs and women in global value chains. To achieve this, women (including those in MSME’s) need gender inclusive institutions/sectors, and the skillsets to thrive an increasingly digitalized, globalised and high-risk world.

Australia and the US have been making great efforts in supporting women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) and building entrepreneurial capacity in vulnerable groups from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

This project will:

1) Advance the APEC Services Competitiveness Roadmap through a focus on increasing women’s participation in the professional/technical workforce;

2) Pilot technical training workshop for APEC women entrepreneurs in Chile in 2019, advancing the skills of APEC women entrepreneurs in STEM, based on the needs and issues identified in the 2018 Brisbane workshop; and

3) Deliver a follow-on APEC policy workshop in Chile in 2019 for government, industry and academia. This workshop would be held during an APEC PPSTI meeting in 2019 (likely SOM3). Outcomes could inform the development of the APEC 2020 Goals and contribute to the APEC 2019 host economy goals.
