ABR BUSINESS SERVICES

POLICY AND LOBBYING WORK

A core element of the ABR’s work is by lobbying to drive change in the legislative and regulatory framework in which our members operate. ABR strongly believed that, all governments, public and international agencies can affect business, because the potential impact of legislation and their policies are most often not understood by those who devise them. The ABR’s unique relationship with business means ABR understands how businesses can be affected by government legislation. The ABR could be an additional platform for conveying the messages to governments as well as public and intentional agencies.

NETWORKING AND KNOWLEDGE SHARING

The ABR strongly believed that, most successful companies are those who network extensively. The ABR has been running conferences, events and meetings since 1990 and our events draw investors and practitioners and policy makers from around the world.
