Asia-Pacific Committee of German Business (APA)
The APA is a joint initiative and umbrella organization of leading business federations – the Federation of German Industries (BDI), the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), the German Asia-Pacific Business Association (OAV), the Federation of German Wholesale and Foreign Trade (BGA) and the Association of German Banks.
The Asia-Pacific Committee voices the concerns of German business in Asia to policy-makers in Germany and the Asia-Pacific region and provides a forum for the formulation and discussion of Asia-related economic and political business interests.
The objective of the APA is to intensify and shape co-operation with the Asia-Pacific countries and to foster mutual trade and investment. As global economic challenges and the economic importance of Asia-Pacific countries are increasing, APA’s mission is to shape the future in changing times, together with Asia, based on the principles of partnership, innovation and sustainability.
