"SNS is the best thing I read." Then-CEO Bill Gates, to Microsoft staff

 

 

   By Scott Foster, SNS Asia Editor [Tokyo]

 

 

 

Publisher's Note:  More often than not, the trends and investments happening in Asia take months or years to show up in volume in the US.  Often, one suspects this is because they are piloted locally, bugs are worked out, and then they're brought into the export stream once the products, services, organization, and plan are all in place for scale. 

 

Certainly this is true for hydrogen infrastructure and fuel-cell vehicles. We've been covering Japan's (and now South Korea's) stealth strategy on this rollout for almost a decade; now it's happening in real time, according to SNS Asia Editor Scott Foster in this week's issue. Similarly, the idea of food factories still seems a bit distant from the US perspective, but somehow I suspect that, having read about them here, we'll soon read about them in the US, the UK, and the EU.

 

As is consistently true of our quarterly Asia Letters, this is another that our members will not want to miss. Thanks to Scott, it remains my best read regarding trends and events in Asia that we all should be watching closely. mra.
