 Asia Times - Asia's most knowledgable news source
BANGKOK - Leaders of 21 Pacific Rim economies succeeded in salvaging some relevance to their gathering - the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit - by coming to the rescue of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and by laying out a blueprint to take on "transnational terrorist groups".
To combat transnational terrorism, for instance, the Bangkok Declaration stated that the APEC member economies had agreed to adopt strict domestic export controls, to secure stockpiles and to take domestic action to "regulate the production, transfer and brokering" of man-portable missiles, such as shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles.
In reference to the WTO, the Bangkok Declaration stated that APEC "reaffirmed the primacy of the multilateral trading system" and agreed to support free-trade talks shaped by the Doha Development Agenda, which was supposed to enable developing countries to gain a secure foothold in the world economy.

It is to be noted, that the American Declaration on Human Rights, which was adopted before the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has maintained its relevance, in particular with regard to State members of OAS which have not ratified the American Convention.

 2. AQUACULTURE ISSUES IN THE BANGKOK DECLARATION
It was with a noble intention that the Bangkok Declaration suggested that information on the nutritional advantages of fish be disseminated widely, so that pregnant and lactating women, their infants and pre-school children may benefit from eating fish - the high-quality protein food.
One obvious concern of those who prepared the Bangkok Declaration is to be found in their suggestion of continued public investment in rural aquaculture and in applied research to help fish farmers in the long run.
The suggestion of the Bangkok Declaration to assemble the known forms of aquaculture technology into an adaptable “toolbox” is an idea that could be implemented immediately by most governments.

As targeted in the Bangkok Declaration, financial speculative fever instead of genuine industrialization -- as what the Ramos administration offered in the Philippines from 1992 up to the 1997 financial crisis -- nonetheless remains at best a cosmetic change in the APEC economies.
These pre-conference cosmetic changes in Bangkok, Thailand in defense of the status quo and to the exclusion of the urban poor set the tone for the APEC Leaders' Meeting held there on Oct. 18-20.
The Bangkok Declaration also gave special attention to the drive to develop even further bond markets and derivatives -- major elements in the speculative boom and bust that marked the Asian financial meltdown in 1997.
