APO alumni can play an important role in generating multiplier effects in national and regional productivity networks. By sharing and disseminating productivity know-how and improving productivity skills and competencies in their workplaces after attending APO projects, alumni are strategically important in broadening the productivity movement in member countries.
Currently, 11 members (Bangladesh, Fiji, India, Indonesia, IR Iran, ROK, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and Thailand) have APO alumni bodies. They share similar objectives, interests, and concerns that are closely related to their countries’ national productivity and competitiveness enhancement agenda. However, the structure, scope of activities, operation, and management methods of each differ. This is the result of situational differences, such as the main parties involved and differing limitations in organizational capacity and available resources.
APO activities also lead to the creation of international groups that support the productivity movement such as the Asia Pacific Association of Educators in Agriculture and Environment (APEAEN) which was born from a 1997 APO project. It provides a possible avenue for expanding APO alumni activities beyond national borders.
