Business leaders from around the world met in Bali last week at the APEC CEO Summit 2013. I was delighted to be a part of this event as I still see significant business potential in Asia Pacific. The DHL Global Connectedness Index reveals that Asia Pacific is the world’s third most connected region and the top-ranked region in terms of trade. Yet there is still a lot of work to be done to ensure long-term growth in the region, including the removal of barriers to trade and infrastructure development. Deutsche Post DHL is committed to being an active voice in these discussions.
