U.S. APEC BUSINESS COALITION
The U.S.- APEC Business Coalition comprises the leading U.S. business associations active on Asia-Pacific trade and economic affairs in support of U.S. business goals and priorities in APEC. The Coalition is designed to serve U.S. businesses by maximizing opportunities for dialogue with officials and dignitaries on APEC-related topics, both at official APEC meetings and throughout the year.
It also facilitates business input to the APEC process by keeping the business community apprised of activities within APEC's official working groups and processes, as well as the work of the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC).
Chair and Secretariat
U.S. APEC Business Coalition Members meet with Commerce Minister Chen Deming of the People's Republic of China, during the APEC 2012 CEO Summit in Vladivostok, Russia.
As Chair and Secretariat of the Coalition, the National Center for APEC ensures the Coalition is inclusive of organizations interested in APEC, the Asia-Pacific trade environment, and upcoming APEC host economies.
