David Thomas: China Becoming World High-Tech Leader
Australian Expert on Emerging Economies Will Lead Mission to AFF 2012

  David Thomas
7 December 2011  As so-called BRIC countries financially "delink" from troubled developed economies, the Chinese mainland is becoming the global leader in the development of technology, according to Australian entrepreneur and facilitator David Thomas. 

Mr Thomas also said “intra-BRIC” trade will likely grow by 30 per cent each year, putting Hong Kong "front and centre" for growth in the Asian region. For more of Mr Thomas’ remarks, please see the video below.
