The Pacific Economic Cooperation Council

The Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (PECC) is a non-governmental body in the Asia Pacific, serving as a regional forum for cooperation and policy coordination to promote regional economic growth and development.

PECC is a unique tripartite partnership of senior individuals from business and industry, government, academic and other intellectual circles. All participate in their private capacity and discuss freely on current, practical policy issues of the Asia Pacific region. Established in 1980, PECC now has 26 Member Committees, including two associate members, and two institutional members from all over Asia Pacific region. Each Member Committee comprises tripartite, senior representatives.

PECC is policy oriented, pragmatic and anticipatory. Its work program aims for better cooperation and policy coordination in areas including trade, investment, and finance.

PECC is the only non-government official observer of APEC and has provided information and analytical support to APEC ministerial meetings and working groups. Also it channels and facilitates private sector participation in the formal process.

As the only non-governmental observer of APEC, PECC also provides a private sector link to the official APEC process.

Australia Committee of the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (AusPECC) is based at the Crawford School of Public Policy.
