Asia's American business leaders meet

The annual Asia-Pacific Council of American Chambers of Commerce (APCAC) Executive

Directors' Forum was held in Siem Reap from October 26 to 28.

The meeting was to discuss "best practices," and to allow the APCAC Executive

Committee to begin preparations for a June 2007 meeting in Washington, DC.

Formed in 1968, APCAC represents the growing interests of over 50,000 business executives

and more than 10,000 business entities in 20 countries of the Asia-Pacific region.

It manages trade volumes of more than $400 billion and Foreign Direct Investments

(FDI) of over $200 billion.

With the aim of improving the competitiveness of US business in the Asia-Pacific

region, APCAC members share knowledge and resources to develop a common understanding

of regional issues, problems and concerns facing the American business community

in the region.

Each year, APCAC's chairman leads a delegation to Washington to hold meetings with

influential members of Congress and senior members of the Administration. The visit

is aimed at increasing the US government's awareness of US business interests in

the Asia-Pacific region.
