This report presents the findings of a world study tour observing the rapid economic expansion of China and India at first hand, and seeking opinion from those best placed to comment on this exciting phenomenon. The tour, while only a brief snapshot of the events taking place, provided the authors with valuable insights into what the UK must do, at a business and policy level, in order to make the most of the opportunities that are and will become available. In particular, policy makers, and business where appropriate, must focus on:

  1. flexibility;
  2. education;
  3. science and innovation;
  4. integration;
  5. the role of institutions.
