Mr. Eddie Byrne of Byrne Air Freight from Ireland made the first speech with the topic " Opportunities & Challenges the recession presents to us in freight forwarding", in which he clearly pointed out that in the coming days, the competition in the freight industry will be extremely keen and critical as the multinational forwarders will lower their rates and provide better services to grip whatever business they can obtain. The only solution to compete with and beat the multinational forwarders is the independent CCA members work closely together with the flexibility that they have and with the in-depth knowledge that each have of their countries, markets and customs, to provide a fully comprehensive and traceable service to their customers.

Mr. Byrne also described that China, being a country has huge trade surpluses with every country in the world, will become a major products importer in the world in the next 3 to 5 years. This gives the CCA Chinese members huge potential to develop import business with their experienced international CCA partners. And it can be best achieved with the close cooperation of the CCA Chinese and International members.
