BEIJING has pulled a key Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) meeting out of Hong Kong.

The Apec Finance Ministers' Meeting (FMM) was scheduled to be held in the city from September 10 to 12.

It will now be "postponed to a new date after late September".

"Accordingly, the location of the FMM would be changed to Beijing to facilitate logistics arrangements," said the Hong Kong government on Tuesday in a statement.
