At 10:36 am the procession of APEC leaders began filing in from the entrance of the convention center, led by President Xi. POTUS followed toward the middle of the pack, walking with Mexico's Pena Nieto to his right and Canada's Trudeau to his left. Pena Nieto was doing most of the talking as the three arrived at the riser for the photo.

POTUS put his arm around the Mexican president before taking his position on the first step of the riser. To his left was the president of Thailand and to his right Vietnam. Prime Minister Medvedev stood behind him but there was no interaction between the two.

After a wave for the cameras the leaders headed off and up the stairs to make their way to the retreat. POTUS shook hands with President Xi as they headed to the stairs and ultimately out of view, just two minutes after arriving.
