ABA strengthens its relationship with bankers’ associations of Asia-Pacific by exchanging information and publications, and participating at each other’s training programs and research activities.

ABA also incorporates policy recommendations from other bankers associations into ABA policy advocacy. ABA has signed MOUs with bankers associations of India, Japan, Mongolia, Philippines, Russia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam, and other recognized Asian banking institutions such as the Association of Development Financing Institution of Asia and the Pacific (ADFIAP).

ABA also collaborates with other important regional organizations such as Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum through the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) to promote banking policies.

Closer working relationships are also constantly being developed with the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (PECC), the Asian Development Bank, the World Bank, and the Bank for International Settlements.

ABA also cooperates with other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with banking experience in Asia, as well as with critical expertise such as ACRAA (Association of Credit Rating Agencies in Asia) and others.
