The APEC Indonesia 2013 was the 25th annual gathering of APEC leaders. It was held in Bali on 5-7 October 2013.[1] The summit also saw the revival of wearing national dress, which had been explicitly discontinued by US President Barack Obama two years prior.


This was the first APEC meetings for Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Chinese President Xi Jinping, South Korean President Park Geun-hye and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto since their inaugurations on 18 September 2013, 15 March 2013, 25 February 2013 and 1 December 2012, respectively.[2][3][4]

United States President Barack Obama canceled his trip due to the United States federal government shutdown of 2013, sending Secretary of State John Kerry in his place.[5]
