Evaluating the Impact of India and China’s Technological Advancement to the U.S. Economy
This program is the first installment of a new series sponsored by HSBC on "Changing the Game: Asia's Emerging Markets"
A growing number of transformative business innovations are being pioneered by India and China’s diversified conglomerates. From mobile phones to telecoms, to medical technology to hybrid cars and consumer goods, knowledge-intensive Indian and Chinese companies are driving the growth of key global markets through “disruptive” and “frugal” innovations in cost, scale, production and distribution. These game changing innovations are shifting the balance to the developing world, where companies like India’s Infosys or China’s Haier are not only leading their industries in rethinking products and distribution systems, but forging privileged trade and investment relationships with Latin America and Africa.
Niall Booker, Group Managing Director and CEO, HSBC North America, will present introductory and concluding remarks to the panel discussion, where Larry Grippo, Trade Policy Analyst, Office of Bilateral Trade Affairs in the Economic Bureau of the State Department will moderate a conversation with Jitendra Singh, Jorge Saul P. Steinberg Professor of Management at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, member of the Mack Center for Technological Innovation at the Wharton School, and co-author of The India Way: How India's Top Business Leaders Are Revolutionizing Management, and Haiyan Wang, Managing Partner of the China India Institute and the co-author of Getting China and India Right.
