We thank Matteo for his significant contribution to Asia-Pacific's regional growth for the last two years and look forward to be in close collaboration while he takes on his new assignment. At the same time, we are optimistic that the Asia Pacific region will continue to achieve its remarkable potential under the new leadership of Francesco while taking a highly cautious approach in all our planning during this period."
