Welcome message from the APEC CEO Summit Chair

Wishnu Wardhana, APEC CEO Summit 2013 Chair

Dear Leaders,

Salam sejahtera from Indonesia.

On behalf of the Indonesian business community, I respectfully invite you to attend the APEC CEO Summit 2013 on 5-7 October in Bali, one of the world's most beautiful islands. Indonesia is delighted to be hosting APEC once again, at a time when the global economy is at a pivotal juncture, almost 20 years on from the Bogor Goals when the leaders of Asia-Pacific first envisioned free and open trade and investment.

The aim of the Summit is to create a unique platform to discuss the future of the Asia-Pacific and to contribute to achieving sustainable inclusive growth globally. As a key stakeholder in our future, I invite you to join us to work together towards a more resilient world and to build bridges to growth to create more opportunities for trade and investment for the benefit of the people in our economies.

The Summit program will be exceptional and will include the Presidents and Prime Ministers of the Asia-Pacific – some of whom are new, CEOs of global corporations, as well as thought leaders in a dynamic interactive format. Through the discussions on stage, and through the high quality networking, we want to ensure that you will gain the latest insight and perspectives on the issues that matter most to your business and the region.

I am confident that with your support, we can reshape our future to make our economies more resilient and fully open for business. At the same time, there is no better chance to discover emerging Indonesia – projected to be the 7th largest economy in the world in the next 20 years – while enjoying the beauty and serenity of Bali.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Summit. Selamat datang to Indonesia.

Yours sincerely,

Wishnu Wardhana
APEC CEO Summit 2013 Chair
