Thai Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai on Thursday unveiled a new logo for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) group in 2022, further emphasizing the theme of "Open. Connect. Balance."

Attending the launching event together with Prime Minister's Office Minister Anucha Nakasai, Don said that the new logo, with the shape of a woven bamboo basket, symbolizes Thailand's traditional agricultural trade.

Don also said the bamboo strips are strong and durable, and meant to "support regional economic stability, prosperity and sustainable development," a symbol that is tangible to the audience.

Thailand officially took over the rotating chairmanship of APEC 2022 on Nov. 12.

According to the schedule, Thailand will hold a number of meetings in 2022, focusing on regional, sustainable and inclusive growth, as well as promoting balance between economy and environment.
