Transport and communications are key to economic growth and fostering development. We examine which technologies and approaches will win out.
Transport has always been a key driver of societies and economies underpinning the great economic power houses of the world. Clearly we are now in an era of huge technological change, which could, eventually see the eclipsing of the internal combustion engine but trains, planes and ships are all increasingly embracing technology while utilisation of data is also shaking up transport and infrastructure. The stakes are high and the rewards worth multibillions of dollars, euros and renminbi.
