Chair of the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC), David Toua, said this recently in Tokyo, Japan, during the ABAC 2 Meeting.
Toua said the region was currently at the crossroads and urged ABAC members not to regress growth.
“One road takes us towards open markets, dynamic flows of goods, services, investment and people, and inclusive growth. The other takes us backwards towards protectionism, exclusion and regional economic slows
“We should not hold back progress in the Asia-Pacific,” said Toua.
