Advisory Board

A Strategic Consortium

Operational Advice

Composed of a consortium of leading experts from around the world, the Advisory Board offers strategic advice to the Asia-Pacific FDI Network Executive Board. The Advisory Board helps in modifying and bettering the governance structure of the Asia-Pacific FDI Network. The Board also contributes to the selection of the research agenda of the Asia-Pacific FDI Forum series.

The Asia-Pacific FDI Network executive board is the operational board which works on implementation of the strategic advice that the Advisory Board has been given.

On the other hand, the functions of the Operational Board primarily are formulating policies for governance, operations and management of the institution with certain ancillary functions, including evaluation and approval of budgets of the Network and Forum and overseeing the general superintendence of the Network and Forum.
