Explanatory Notes — APEC Countries
This group includes countries which are member economies of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) organisation.
The countries are:
- Brunei Darussalam
- Hong Kong
- Korea (South)
- New Zealand
- Papua New Guinea
- United States
There is also a predefined group called APEC (Excluding The Americas) which excludes Canada, Chile, Mexico, Peru and the United States from the list.
- The country classifications used in "Trade Data Online", which are derived from ones employed by Statistics Canada and the U.S. Census Bureau, are designed for the purposes of economic geography and therefore do not reflect the views or intentions of the Government of Canada nor of the Government of the United States on international issues of recognition, sovereignty or jurisdiction.
- To assist search and display in selection lists, country names appear in short form. For example, the "People's Democratic Republic of Laos" will simply appear as "Laos" for ease of use. Similarly, the "Republic of Korea" will appear as "Korea, South" in the list and so on.
- There are minor differences between Canadian and U.S. country classifications, mainly reflecting how a number of smaller states are treated (e.g. whether "Vatican City State" is included with "Italy" or not).
