The APEC CEO Summit is the most influential meeting of business and government leaders in the Asia Pacific. It has a powerful program that addresses the biggest questions of the day, and features APEC Leaders, global CEOs, visionary entrepreneurs, highly respected thought leaders and subject matter experts from all over the world. The Summit is a strategic networking and learning gathering for an audience of key decision-makers and top figures in business and politics. It has worldwide media exposure through global, regional and local media covering the event.

The APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) was created by the APEC Economic Leaders in November 1995 to provide advice on the implementation of the Osaka Action Agenda and on other specific business sector priorities, and to respond when the various APEC fora request information about business-related issues or to provide the business perspective on specific areas of cooperation.

ABAC comprises up to three members of the private sector from each economy. ABAC members are appointed by their respective Leaders, and represent a range of business sectors, including small and medium enterprises.
