ABAC encourages business to make known its views on issues affecting the regional economy through their respective ABAC representatives. The latter are responsible for reflecting these views in ABAC deliberations. ABAC positions and recommendations are, in turn, communicated to APEC Leaders through the submission of an annual report and the holding of an annual dialogue. In addition, ABAC also participates and presents its views and recommendations to APEC through the APEC Senior Officials' Meeting (SOM) and the sectoral ministerial meetings, including those on trade, finance and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
