Harvey Goldstein is a philanthropist, a strategic international business consultant, the founder and chairman of Indonesian-based Harvest International, and a member and leader of several global organizations. With decades of business experience in Indonesia and throughout the rest of Southeast Asia, Harvey Goldstein is well versed in the needs and issues of the region and works to improve economic development. The recent Trans-Pacific Partnership will have a major impact on the region, and the Asia Pacific Council of American Chambers of Commerce (APCAC) is one of the organizations to which Mr. Goldstein belongs that supports this effort.
An association of nearly 30 American chambers of commerce in the Asia-Pacific region, APCAC represents over 15,000 companies with over $600 billion in investment in the area.
APCAC recently voiced its support for the TPP, a free trade agreement (FTA) between the United States, Canada, and several other countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Pending approval in the U.S., the FTA stands to eliminate tariffs and reduce barriers to trade.
The goal of the agreement is to harmonize numerous regulations among the countries involved for the purpose of streamlining and improving international trade to the benefit of all countries.
