Building Industry 4.0 Capacity
Need Analysis of Six APO Economies
Analysis shows that all countries included in this research in the clusters of nascent economies, legacy economies, and leading economies show strength in their economic development dynamism and future-oriented governance structures and policies. Their main needs are currently similar. All share weaknesses in digital infrastructure, and most of them in science and R&D. Therefore, the recommendations focus on how governments, businesses, and related institutions could address R&D, innovation, industrial policies, education, and labor market policies.
