The last couple of years have been tough ones for businesses. It’s meant grappling with challenges ranging from supply chain disruption to trade tensions and fragile economic growth. Inflation headwinds, emerging technologies and climate change are some of the other disruptive forces at play.
The APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) has been charged with advising the Asia-Pacific region’s political leaders on helping businesses to navigate this turbulent landscape.
ABAC New Zealand members Rachel Taulelei, Anna Curzon and Brett O’Riley are at the forefront of these discussions, leading workstreams on economic integration and the World Trade Organization (WTO), the participation of Indigenous entrepreneurs in trade, and climate change.
We would love to hear your thoughts
We are keen to get your ‘take’ on these issues and other business concerns in the region, to help us shape ABAC priorities for next year. ABAC Peru will chair the Council from December, and we are looking forward to working closely with our Peruvian friends on many areas of shared interest.
We will conclude the event with drinks and networking, courtesy of NZIBF – so please do join us!
