The heads of government of all Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Member Economies meet annually in a summit called "APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting" rotating in location among APEC's Member Economies. However, due to the nature of the Economic Forum of APEC and One China Policy that President of the Republic of China is not allowed to appear in APEC and President of the Republic of China appoints a special envoy every year to attend APEC Meeting under the name Chinese Taipei.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Leadership in semi-governmental organizations are classified here as "official offices."
  2. ^ President Chen Shui-bian had appointed former Vice President Li Yuan-zu as his envoy, but the PRC, which was hosting the summit, objected to his choice and the Chinese Taipei delegation decided to boycott.
  3. ^ President Chen's original choice of Legislative Yuan President Wang Jin-pyng was rejected by the host South Korea (after the PRC objected to the choice[citation needed]). Chen also applied to attend personally but was denied his request.
  4. ^ President Chen's original choice of former Vice Premier Tsai Ing-wen was rejected by Australia (at the request of the PRC[citation needed]) because of her alleged involvement in formulating the "One Country on Each Side" theory.[citation needed]
