China and India Industrializing Innovation in Large Countries
Unlike Africa, the challenges of large countries like China and India of Asia are fundamentally different. These are more industrial and modern economies with the legacy of highly developed ancient cultures and civilizations that once dominated the world’s GDP. Their scale is significantly different too. Between them, they contain one out of the three people on this planet. Creating a new innovation ecosystem in either one would require a different path. One would have to study and apply the learnings of the past. Such a large and diverse human population is beyond any set of simple generalizations.
