The Federation of Asia-Pacific Retailers Associations (FAPRA) was founded in 1983 and fully established in 1989. It has implemented activities and developed itself to discuss common issues in the region, and promote information exchange and friendship, thereby contributing to the development of commerce and the improvement of retailers’ status and citizens’ lives in the region.
FAPRA has been a congregation of retail associations that come together for one key objective – the sharing of information. Echoing this, one of the successful activities of FAPRA is the biennial Asia Pacific Retailers Convention & Exhibition (APRCE) which provides opportunities for FAPRA members to learn from experts as well as enjoy meeting and establishing relationships with counterparts from around the region.
To honor FAPRA’s associations’ members who have reached outstanding achievements in the retail industry in the Asia-Pacific region, FAPRA Award was first presented in 2009 and were presented in APRCE since then.
To effectively and efficiently strengthen its coordination and networking among FAPRA members, the Permanent Secretariat (PS) was established in March 2006.
