Bilateral Cooperation Between NPOs (BCBN)
The economic development, level of competitiveness, and cultural diversity of members are great assets of the APO. Developed members such as the ROC, Japan, ROK, and Singapore are regularly ranked in the top 20 most competitive and innovative economies, while developing members are catching up rapidly. The Bilateral Cooperation Between NPOs scheme provides the perfect platform for members to learn more about and share best practices to improve national competitiveness. The scheme facilitates meetings between high-level officials of NPOs and policymakers as well as observations of new productivity initiatives and interventions to assist members in becoming more competitive.
