The Private Sector as a Stakeholder

The private sector needs to respond to the challenges posed by the rise of the China and India by:

  • Specialising in areas where it can realistically foresee competitive advantage
  • Continually renewing dynamic capabilities as the competitive frontier changes, often as a consequence of competitive advances of the Asian Drivers
  • Searching out new sources of supply in the Asian Drivers
  • Searching out new markets in the Asian Drivers

In some cases this will involve actions taken by individual firms; in other cases by groups of firms.
