It will be a milestone moment for the APEC group, who are meeting with the Forum Leaders for the first time in APEC's 29-year history. 

Papua New Guinea, Australia and New Zealand are the three Forum members of APEC, a grouping which generates almost 60 per cent of global GDP and almost half of global trade through members such as China, Japan, Singapore, the Philippines, Russia and the United States.

The Forum and APEC leaders are tipped to discuss the APEC theme of embracing the digital future, along with any shared priorities for trade and economic cooperation.
