IBM Global Innovation Outlook – Asia


In 2009, IBM ran three international Global Innovation Outlook think-tank events.  The events brought together leaders from the fields of policy, business, research and the third sector to jointly consider issues affecting our world today. Kobus Mentz joined 30 other selected specialists at the Asia / Australasia event to discuss sustainable practices that would address water, healthcare, energy and economic development challenges. The event was set against the backdrop of Asia urbanising at a rate of 100,000 per day, which is equal to the creation of seven New York Cities a year.
