In a few hours, 2008 will end and many will find themselves embracing a brand new year of 2009 – ready or not.
2008 will be memorable in many ways and for many reasons, though it will be always be remembered as the year the credit crunch bit deep and hard. Many now anticipate a challenging year ahead in 2009 as the impact from the economic crisis continues to be felt.
In times like these, we take a moment to remember, that what does not kill us, will only make us stronger.
Through all the adverse economic effects felt around the world, we hope that you are still resiliently celebrating the start of a new year, and welcoming it with family, friends and those who matter most to you as they will be the ones who will be standing by you as you take on 2009 – a sentiment echoed by our Editor, Margie T. Logarta in her latest Dashboard post.
The team at Business Traveller Asia-Pacific would like to take this opportunity now to thank you for all your support in 2008, and wish one and all, the very best and good health for 2009!
