APCAC Business Summit 2019
The Asia Pacific Council of American Chambers of Commerce (APCAC) concluded its 2019 Spring Business Summit, a two-day gathering of key American business leaders, diplomats, and American Chamber representatives from across the region, in Hong Kong on March 4th – 5th 2019. Critical conclusions reached at this year’s summit underscore both the historic and current impact of American investment in the Asia-Pacific region, and the urgent need for increased engagement by companies and American Chambers to address the shifting and uncertain global trade landscape.
Specifically, a successful and timely resolution of the ongoing U.S.-China trade dispute should create stronger confidence by U.S. companies to deepen their investments and take further advantage of opportunities in this dynamic region. Also, the summit further highlighted, now more than ever before, the need for AmChams to play a vital role in facilitating a broad public discourse on the benefits of global trade and the need for American business to drive this growth. Indeed, AmChams are at the forefront at leading this change.
The impact of American business leadership in Asia has a proven track record of advancing innovation, sustainable growth, and social development. APCAC looks forward to the important work ahead and next year’s Spring Business Summit, which will be held in Singapore in March 2020. For more information, please visit www.apcac.org.
