FedEx executives will join business and government leaders in Bali, Indonesia for the Asia Pacific Economic Conference (APEC) CEO summit on 5th-7th October. The high-profile event plays a major role in creating networks and increasing openness and integration among global trading partners and last year included keynote speeches from the leaders of China, Russia, Australia and Vietnam.
The theme of this year's conference is “Towards Resilience and Growth: Reshaping Priorities for Global Economy,” and Michael L. Ducker, Chief Operating Officer and President of International, FedEx Express, will participate in the summit dialogue session entitled ‘The State of the Global Trading System: Where To Next?' He commented: "FedEx has long been a strong supporter of facilitating global trade by lowering barriers to help markets grow and of making it easier for our customers to ship internationally. The APEC CEO Summit continues to be the leading forum for new ideas in trade facilitation among the world’s fastest growing economies, and FedEx is looking forward to progress in streamlining trade procedures worldwide.”
