APEC Business Advisory Council

The Government works closely with Australian business leaders in regional and multilateral business groups, such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Business Advisory Council (ABAC) and the business forum (B20) in the G20, which helps to expand Australia’s influence and ensure our policy approaches in these forums work to maximise economic benefit for Australia. Australia hosted the first ABAC meeting of 2020 in Sydney, helping to shape ABAC’s agenda.
