BEIJING, March 13 (Xinhua) -- China will send Yin Hengmin, its special representative on Latin American affairs, to attend the upcoming Chile meeting on Asia-Pacific economic integration, said a Foreign Ministry spokesperson on Monday.
"The meeting is a high-profile one on the subject of Asia-Pacific regional economic integration by Latin America's four-member Pacific Alliance and Asia-Pacific countries," spokesperson Hua Chunying said at a routine press briefing.
China hopes the meeting will contribute to boosting the Asia-Pacific FTA and regional economic integration and creating an open economy, she said.
Hua said the Chile meeting will focus on the exchange of opinions on the future of Asia-Pacific cooperation rather than the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
The Chile meeting, to be held March 14-15, will show the willingness to move in the direction of economic integration and openness, Chilean Foreign Minister Heraldo Munoz said on Sunday.
