▶ Leaders of 21 Pacific Rim nations posed for a photograph on Nov. 19 after their two-day Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting in Hanoi, Vietnam.
The pictorial highlight of the event is the photograph session of the 21 leaders dressed in the host-country’s traditional costume. Vietnam provided each leader an “Ao Dai,” a long gown worn by royals in the past, and female leaders were also given “khan dong,” a royal headdress. The photograph of leaders dressed up in the host-country’s traditional outfit has been a signature APEC image since 1989.
