Since 2002, the Bali Process has raised regional awareness of the consequences of irregular migration. It is a forum for policy dialogue, information sharing and practical cooperation to help the region address these challenges.

 

In 2016, at the Sixth Bali Process Ministerial Conference, governments decided to engage more closely with the private sector to  combat these crimes. The Bali Process Government and Business Forum was formed as a business track of the Bali Process, inaugurally launched in 2017 in Perth, Western Australia.
