The Asia Pacific region is an overall innovation leader with 2.3 billion internet users; it produces 65% of the world’s industrial robotics and is a huge growth market for digital transformation. Singapore is one of the most modern cities in the world; it’s no surprise that leading organizations will feature some of their best work here.
