APEC parties welcome global leaders in business, policy to San Francisco

Not only are meetings and conferences for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit kicking off in San Francisco this week, but there are also many afterparties for attendees to enjoy.

A finance ministers meeting set to begin at 9 a.m. Monday will feature opening remarks from U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, who was quite busy over the weekend.

On Sunday, Yellen held an introductory meeting with China’s minister of finance, where she spoke about her meetings with China’s vice premier last week before the summit began.

Outside the summit, protesters have been making their voices heard.
