Air cargo represents about 35% of world trade by value, underpins much of the global economy and is often a leading economic indicator. After a long period of stagnation, there are now signs of recovery. Yet even as business rebounds, the economy never returns quite the way it was, and industries must continually adjust to new business environments.
Coming out of the recession, Asian economies have been growing rapidly, creating new opportunities for the air cargo industry. From a U.S. perspective, trans-Pacific air routes become more important as the historic U.S.-Japan Open Skies Agreement creates even more new possibilities.
Considering these points, it is beneficial to examine developments in freight transportation around the world. We will look at how airlines are coping with increased competition and exploring new markets. We have invited distinguished speakers to share information and insights on these topics and to discuss the future of the air cargo industry in Asia.
