About AHC Logo 

The official symbol of APEC Harmonization Center is in the design of the taegeuk mark, symbolizing the harmony of the East and the West of the Asia Pacific region through the principles of “Yin”, the negative aspect rendered in blue, and “Yang”, the positive aspect rendered in red, expressing the origin and movement of all objects in the universe in perfect balance.

The Red and Blue arms joined together at the center and extending outward represent continuation of successful progress of international regulatory harmonization initiative across the APEC regions through coordinated, collaborative approach.

Under the overarching theme of the East meets West, the APEC Harmonization Center aims to enhance communication among APEC member economies by providing an arena to exchange high-standard international harmonization guidelines and to advance effective trade facilitation and regional economic integration agendas, towards sustainable economic growth and prosperity.
