Publisher’s Note: In this issue, Members will get an inside look at two strategic issues shaping global technology and economics. The first, the evolution of what we have been calling “ChinaPan” since our FiRe conferences began in 2003, remains under-reported and cannot be overestimated in its importance. The second, the global race for the moon, is a long-term competition that will affect alliances and technological development for decades to come.
Thanks to Asia Editor Scott Foster, we are lucky enough to have the insight of a member of the Minister’s Secretariat at Japan’s Ministry of Economy Trade and Industry. – mra.
