    A strong opener; so the businesses become standoffish because of the economics with Britain and Europe, and the situation surrounding China, terrorism, and climate change. And let's not forget, labor unrest and political tensions, as is mentioned...Perhaps a global world of commerce has reached us so fast, and it has reached us in ways that have never happened and therefore said commerce brings with it global sized problems. All of this in turn leads to " a lackluster year for corporate travel." Yet it is still hopeful. As is stated, the situation is not long term, and a resolution with USA - China is needed. Quite insightful. https://www.atlantagreatermetrolimousine.com/
