The Asia-Pacific Council of American Chambers of Commerce (APCAC) was formed in 1968. Through 29 member chambers, APCAC represents the growing interests of over 50,000 business executives and over 10,000 business entities in 21 economies of the Asia-Pacific region. The APCAC membership manages trade volume of over US$400 billion and direct investments (FDI) of over US$300 billion.
APCAC’s mission is to improve the competitiveness of U.S. business in the Asia- Pacific region. APCAC members combine their resources and knowledge to develop a common understanding of regional issues, problems and concerns facing the American business community in Asia-Pacific. Member chambers communicate on an ongoing basis and gather annually to discuss and adopt positions on priority issues. A strategy is developed for expressing and giving effect to our opinions on each issue. APCAC identifies organisations with mutual interests and pursues a course of action to disseminate and communicate our positions to relevant governments and other organisations.
