APEC Cards Application Assistance Benefits
The APEC Business Travel Card (ABTC) is a card issued to business travelers and senior government officials who meet certain requirements. APEC manages the ABTC program, which it refers to as the ABTC scheme. The ABTC scheme seeks to facilitate travel in the APEC region.
Nineteen APEC economies are fully participating members to the ABTC scheme: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, China, Hong Kong,China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, the Philippines, the Russian Federation, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, and Viet Nam.
ABTC holders granted preclearance by an APEC economy do not need to make a separate application for a visa or entry permit when traveling to that economy especially China, which mean you do not need to apply for visa to enter China.
The ABTC gives frequent business travelers:
- Fast-track green lane entry and exit through special APEC lanes at participating airports; and,
- Multiple, short-term entries to precleared APEC economies without having to make a separate visa application to fully participating members.
Two APEC economies are transitional members to the ABTC scheme: Canada and the United States.

MDCC as an association provides its members with opportunities to network and share information and resources. While we understand that some businesses that belong to an association are likely to be competitors, they still share certain needs and preferences. Association members can help one another directly with referrals for services. Joining MDCC provides business owner with networking contact information with other local businesses, speeding up the process of integrating into the community.
MDCC as an associations allow members to join forces politically. While most associations have no specific party affiliation or political agenda like MDCC, the political issues that affect business owners are among our concerns. For example, we as a business association would likely be against a sales tax increase, since such an increase would directly affect business by forcing customers to pay more or we would feedback to the government the needs for grant to stimulate businesses to improve on their operation through the grant. MDCC as an associations can contact legislators on behalf of their members and lobby political campaigns to push forward legislation that favors commerce.
For a business owner, the opportunity to participate in MDCC can be as much of a personal consideration as a business decision. Associations such as MDCC hold dinners and special events for their members, giving them chances to meet with their peers and enjoy the company of fellow entrepreneurs. Participation in a business association like MDCC will also serve as a social expectation in a community where small business owners know one another through work as well as outside of it.
