About Us » 


The APO alumni 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, the alumni are strategically important in broadening the productivity movement in member countries.

Currently, 10 member economies, comprising Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, I.R. Iran, 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 agendas. However, the structure, scope of activities, operation, and management methods of each differ.
