CORRECTED - CORRECTED-APEC removes references to FX rates, emissions cut

(Corrects to show final declaration includes reference to stimulus policies)

SINGAPORE, Nov 15 (Reuters) - APEC ended its summit on Sunday with a final statement that removed earlier draft references to endorsing “market-oriented exchange rates” and to targets for carbon emissions cuts.

The statement did say the 21 leaders of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum would seek to conclude the Doha Round of global trade talks in 2010 and that they “reject all forms of protectionism”.

A final APEC leaders’ declaration also said the 21-member economies that include the United States, Japan and China will maintain stimulus policies until a durable global economic recovery has clearly taken hold.
