About us

The mission of the Chilean Pacific Foundation is to promote the economic, cultural and social insertion of Chile in the Pacific Basin, as well as the knowledge in the country about the political, economic, social and cultural systems of that region, through analysis of their markets, support for bilateral relations, development and participation in cultural projects, all in close collaboration with government institutions, the private sector, universities and study centers.

History

Chile’s relationship with Asian countries has been permanent, intensifying from the first half of the 1990s. In 1990, the country joined the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (PECC). Shortly after, in 1994, Chile joined the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Cooperation Forum.

APEC Business Advisory Council

The Chile Pacific Foundation was early considered to played the role of National Secretariat of the Chilean chapter of ABAC (APEC Business Advisory Council). ABAC is an organization under the APEC system aimed at providing advise to the leaders of APEC, which is a forum of an economic nature, on issues pertaining to the overall business landscape in the Asia Pacific region. Since its inception in 1994, ABAC’s agenda has been incorporating the most relevant issues for the promotion of economic and social development in the region, from free trade and the expansion of the digitalization of the economy to climate change, among many others.

The members of ABAC are entrepreneurs and/or representatives of the business community invited by the President of the Republic. ABAC Chile operates with three full members and the same number of alternate members.

The host economy of APEC also chairs ABAC. ABAC moves his agenda forward throughout the year and hosts four annual meetings alongside a number of other sectorial, smaller meetings, workshops and the like. The most significant event is the ABAC Dialogue with Leaders, the only one of its kind in the world, which takes place after the fourth annual meeting. At this event, ABAC members and APEC leaders discuss the recommendations agreed upon in ABAC.
