Executive summary (Innovation in Southeast Asia)

Southeast Asia is one of the world's most dynamic regions. Southeast Asian economies are undergoing rapid changes and becoming ever more closely integrated into fast-evolving regional and global production and knowledge networks. Extending and deepening their capacities in science, technology (S and T) and innovation provides an opportunity for Southeast Asian countries to maximise the benefits of these changes by moving up the value chain, differentiating their economies and contributing to advances in science and technology in order to tackle societal grand challenges. A better understanding of existing capabilities and their dynamics is essential for their future development.
