"21st Century Production - New Rules for a New Game.
STI strategy to be a main driver of Japan's economic growth?"
For hundreds of years, value has been created by manufacturing physical products, but in the 21st century that is changing. Take the iPod: Production in 2006 accounted for 14,000 jobs inside the United States and 27,000 jobs outside. But American workers – those who contributed design, software and marketing expertise – earned $753 million, nearly twice as much as foreign workers.
Research by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development shows that countries that invest more in knowledge are also the best at reallocating resources to innovative firms. And it shows that policy has yet to adjust to the increasingly interconnected nature of the global economy and the growing importance of knowledge for growth.
Andrew Wyckoff will discuss the 21st century production revolution underway and its implications for Japan's growth strategy for science, technology and innovation. He will discuss what Japan must do to unlock the benefits of global value chains and investment in knowledge to deliver inclusive and sustainable growth. Yuko Harayama will give the Japanese government perspectives.
Andrew W. Wyckoff is the Director of the OECD's Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry. Dr. Yuko Harayama is an executive member of the Council for Science and Technology Policy at the Japan's Cabinet Office.
