Some 42% of Asia Pacific-based executives say they are ‘very confident’ of revenue growth in the coming year, up from 36% last year. Longer term, 52% say they are confident of growth over the next three to five years, about the same as in 2012.

PwC's 2013 APEC CEO Survey of nearly 500 top business leaders with operations in at least one of APEC’s 21 economies found confidence on the rise.

  • China, Indonesia, US ranked as top investment destinations.
  • Urbanisation, rising middle class, infrastructure - potential sources of growth
