The global economy is seeing some signs of lifting. The Eurozone's GDP growth of 0.3% in Q2 has injected a sense of optimism. Even as there are signs of decline in global financial services transaction activities, new pockets of growth continue to exist.
Asia-Pacific's rapidly growing markets clearly offer organizations unique opportunities to reap growth. Venturing into the unfamiliar can sometimes expose companies to fraud risks. We share our first Asia-Pacific fraud survey on their fraud, bribery and corruption, and compliance policies and practices.
This issue, we also discuss the role of the Chief Operating Officer, who is increasingly challenged to excel beyond their natural role.
Also, we share a special report sharing how mobile network operators can succeed by differentiating their services with ubiquitous connectivity solutions.
Last but not least, I'm pleased to share that EY's 2013 global revenues of US$25.8b represents 7.7% growth over the previous financial year in local currency terms. This marks our fastest growth since 2008.
Looking forward, we remain committed to providing exceptional, high quality service to our clients as we work towards building a better working world.
