is also a member of Asia-Pacific Franchise Confederation (APFC)
, an amicable, non-political association of NFAs
around the Asia-Pacific region
. Formed on September 24, 1998, the objectives of APFC
are to provide a forum with properly constituted NFAs
in the Asia-Pacific region
where they can share experience, information and technical â€œknow-howâ€ on franchising, including the establishment of better communication channels among members.
It is also to encourage further development of properly constituted NFAs in all countries within the region in order to strengthen the industry networking regionally and to present regional information in franchising and the common views of NFAs within the region to international bodies like the World Franchise Council.
