“The point about Asian innovation is, I think, that we live in a world where globalization transcends borders. There is not one product introduced by our company in the past 10 years that has been based on the work done in just one country. So it’s not about China innovation or Asian innovation: It’s about how people are connected with the rest of the world.”
