This comes from the BBC:

"Leaders of the 21-member Asia-Pacific Co-operation (Apec) forum have pledged to move towards creating a regional free-trade area.

The agreement was announced at the end of a two-day summit in Yokohama, Japan.

The move would link the world's three biggest economies - the United States, Japan and China.

However, deep differences remain - chiefly between the US and China - over trade imbalances and currency distortions.

Washington wants to increase its own exports to the region, and believes China's cheap currency is a barrier to that goal.

Chinese President Hu Jintao has said any change will only be made at Beijing's own pace."
