Policy advocacy

CACCI recognizes the need to assume greater policy advocacy role in the region in order to: (a) promote a business environment conducive to creating better business opportunities, promoting intra-regional trade and investments, and serving the interest of CACCI members, (b) bring CACCI, as a representative body of Asian economic bloc, at the forefront in making the voices of Asian businesses heard in the international economic arena; and (c) provide a forum for members to ventilate issues, share information, and communicate their views with each other, and recommend solutions.

To achieve these objectives, CACCI regularly prepares position papers and policy statements on issues which are of concern to, and are critical for the development of, the region’s business sector; propose approaches on how these issues may be resolved, and help formulate policy statements articulating these issues and their recommendations which, with the approval of the CACCI Council, will then be submitted to the appropriate regional or international body for consideration.
