    What it means for Australia

    By the end of the decade Asia will account for 39% of the world's GDP. Considering that around 75% of Australian exports are going to Asia, you simply can’t understand the nation's long-term economic prospects without a good understanding of what’s happening in the major Asian economies. Saul's profound knowledge of these emerging economic powers can help corporations worldwide understand what the global distribution of economic production will look like for their business, assess their 'readiness' to adapt to these new markets, and much more.
