APEC Economic Leaders in Chinese-Style Costumes
The attire consists of a satin jacket featuring Chinese-style cotton buttons and round flower patterns with peonies surrounding the four letters of APEC, and a white silk shirt.
It's a custom for leaders of APEC members to put on costumes provided by the host for their annual retreat.
This year's attire was designed by the Shanghai Garment Research Institute and Qinyi Company. It was selected out of more than 40 candidates from all over the country.
The leaders are expected to pose for a group photo in the attire at the end of the gathering.
