During the welcome dinner at the PAA Fellowship Night, PAA Chairman Mr. Saw Ken Wye updated members about the recent APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) meeting held in Danang, Vietnam.

Given our experience and achievement in driving seamless cross border e-trade, PAA is well positioned to play a key role in this area.
