The Asian-Pacific Association of Banking Institutes (APABI) is a semi-formal and non-profit association established in 1986 by 11 banking institutes (founding members). It currently counts 20 banking institutes in the Asia-Pacific Region as its members. APABI plays an important role in bringing together specialist training institutes sharing a common goal, to equip banks and financial institutions with the capacity to deal with the transformational developments shaping the financial sector, supporting the continued renewal of its most valuable asset: human capital. The APABI Executive Committee meets once every two years. APABI has no membership fee or corpus. As such, the members take on the responsibility of organizing its meetings and conferences on a rotating basis. The meetings and conferences have been found useful for the APABI members and also the host institute.
