The Asia Pacific Technology Network (APTN) is holding an event in London on 3 July, at which I will be speaking. Please see the details from the APTN website below:
Conventional wisdom tells executives that their companies should have a “China + One” strategy, but this raises as many questions as answers. For one thing, China is not one coherent economic space, so should a company develop a national strategy, or should it focus on a number of leading cities or, perhaps, a limited number of provinces? Moving beyond China, should Vietnam be treated as just one more Chinese region? Beyond that, how should one treat Japan, still the largest and richest economy in the region? What about high-tech power houses such as South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore? What about the other players in ASEAN? …. and then, there is India.
