ABAC Members

 

Each APEC economy is entitled to nominate up to three senior business people as Members of ABAC, which means the body can at any one time have up to 63 members. Appointments are made by the Leader of the member economy concerned. They represent a diverse range of sectors and include small and large enterprises.

APEC member economies individually determine the terms of membership of their appointees as well as their own administrative arrangements and staff support. Chairmanship of ABAC changes annually, and is the prerogative of the economy that is hosting APEC. There are two ABAC Co-Chairs, one from the immediate past ABAC Chair, and another from the immediate future ABAC Chair.
