Striving to ensure that the United States remains competitive in the Asian Pacific, APCAC represents more than 15,000 businesses throughout the region. APCAC’s leadership feels that American interests are currently facing a critical juncture in the Asian Pacific.
In recent years, APCAC has stressed its strong support of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), an international trade agreement that significantly affects Pacific Rim countries including the United States. APCAC praises the TPP for its perceived ability to promote economic advantages for US companies/workers, to engender specific benefits for US companies that operate in Japan, and to secure US leadership in the Asian Pacific for years to come. In general, APCAC sees the TPP as an essential tool to remove trade/investment barriers and generally promote economic growth between US and Asian Pacific allies.
