"Attempts to erect barriers and cut close economic ties work against the laws of economics and the trends of history", he told business leaders on the sidelines of the summit.

In an advisory sent to members of the media, Malacañang said that Duterte will skip the last day of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit held in Papua New Guinea and will fly back to Davao City late Saturday evening. He warned against confrontation in the form of a trade war or Cold War. Sign-up now and enjoy one (1) week free access!

Xi also stressed that there would be no winners from a trade war between USA and China.

"But that is nothing compared with what we see now", a resident said on Saturday, citing snipers on the roof, parts of the hotel sealed off, road blocks and special clearance required for cars.

There have been concerns that small countries that sign up for infrastructure projects will be left with debt burdens they can not service, something Pence highlighted.

Pence tweeted that he would discuss "Trump's commitment to prosperity, security and freedom in the Indo-Pacific".

Xi also defended his country's massive "Belt and Road" infrastructure initiative amid attacks that it is akin to "chequebook diplomacy" to further Chinese interests in the region.

Xi urged the world to "say no to protectionism and unilateralism", warning it was a "short-sighted approach" that was "doomed to failure".

However, he also said the USA sought a "better relationship" with China and progress was being made in trade talks ahead of a mooted meeting between Trump and Xi at the G20 in late November.

US President Donald Trump has made a decision to skip the APEC summit, which some critics say has left the stage free for China to bolster its influence in the region.

U.S. President Donald Trump is not attending the APEC meeting, nor is Russia's president, Vladimir Putin.

The two countries have been involved in an escalating trade war this year, imposing tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars' worth of goods, and have said that the tariffs could be increased.

"We filled forms for passes - with the worldwide media - yesterday, around midday, thinking the issue of (airport) access would have been resolved by now".

China's efforts to win friends in the resource-rich Pacific have been watched warily by the traditionally influential powers in the region - Australia and the US. "The United States deals openly and fairly".
