The APEC STAR Database is a business-friendly, on-line tool to help services providers take advantage of new export opportunities in APEC economies. By gathering information on services market access into a single, easily accessible knowledge bank, the STAR database has increased business awareness of the regulatory requirements to trade.

Launched in 2010, the APEC STAR Database is an Australian Government’s initiative, co-sponsored by Chile; Mexico; New Zealand; Philippines; Peru and the United States. To date, the APEC STAR database has been a key focus and flagship project of the APEC Group on Services (GOS) and has been jointly funded by APEC and the Australian Government.

This report details the outcomes of phase four of the APEC STAR Database.
