The Asia Pacific Council of American Chambers of Commerce, or APCAC, was created in 1968 to serve America’s financial and business needs in the rapidly developing Asia Pacific region. Today, it represents a partnership between 29 chambers of commerce, 15,000 businesses, and upward of 10 million employees across the world.apcac.org/
APCAC has recently focused on passing the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015. This bill, sponsored by Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, would set objectives for trade negotiations in international markets including the Asia Pacific region. Designed to keep the United States competitive in the changing global trade landscape, the bill has been introduced and is due for further consideration.
