Q: What regions or countries are under served in trade yet offer potentially big growth for exporters?
A: When I think about the regions that have the greatest potential for growth, immediately my first thought is greater China. Even with the advances that have been made in logistics and transportation in this region during the past 10-15 years, there is still a huge opportunity. Currently, only one-fifth of the population is in the greater economy and while great strides have been made to serve the remaining part of the population, it is still such a vast area that we have just begun to scratch the surface.
I also think there is a huge opportunity for exporters in Africa. The entire continent is starting to develop and invest in infrastructure, making expansion there more feasible.
