Emerging Trends Reshaping Asia

In this special edition of Research Reports, we look ahead to the major trends that will re-shape the Asia-Pacific region in the next ten to fifteen years. These short briefs analyze emerging trends in areas such as e-commerce, financial architecture, regional security, urbanization and green urban growth, and climate change. The briefs discuss the potential impact of these trends on Asia, and the possible ramifications for Canadian interests. This project was created for Policy Horizons Canada's Foresight on the Future of Asia Project.
