The APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) World Leader Summit is in full force. With all leaders from various countries all accounted for, the event has brought horrible traffic in the metropolis, leaving commuters to walk for several kilometers just to reach their offices and homes. But if there is one good thing this convergence of world leaders happening in the country now, is to have a sneak peek on who is the handsomest and good looking delegate to ever grace this side of the world.

Let’s take a closer look of the newest Prime Minister of Canada, the 43-year-old PM Justin Pierre James Trudeau, and Mexican hotshot, Pres. Enrique Peña Nieto.  Here are some sizzling facts you want to know about APEC hotties Nieto and Trudeau.
