International officials have expressed their optimism for the bilateral conversation, believing it will bring opportunities to the world.

Rebecca Fatima Sta Maria, executive director of the APEC Secretariat, said that "the fact that the two important biggest economies are here to have the very important conversation, a crucial conversation, at this time really opens the door to other opportunities for the world" and that it brings "a strong dose of optimism as the year comes to a close and the start of the next year".
