The Indian Trade Promotion Organization had requested the Indian High Commission to depute an official to the event as ITPO could not send an officer from India.

The ATPF, comprising 24 member countries including Australia, Japan and China, aims to enhance trade in the region through information exchange, implementation of cooperative projects and strengthening networks among members.

CEO meetings and Working Level Meetings are held once a year.
