Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) conducted an online survey in 2011 to determine the extent of the business continuity management (BCM) status of its 21member economies in the private sector. The United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR) adopted the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015 (HFA) with several priorities for action (PFA) with the objective of reducing vulnerability and increasing disaster resiliency. This paper considers which subjects of PFA in HFA are important for enhancing the BCM status of the private sector together with APEC survey output in 2011.
