G-20 leaders reached an important consensus at the Hangzhou Summit 2016, which is to take innovation as a key driver and foster new driving force of growth for the global economy. The economic growth is now occurring mostly in emerging markets, and today’s global challengers, fast-growing fast-globalizing companies, are from emerging markets. These trends and characteristics provide a new set of opportunities for entrepreneurs and investors in both the developed and developing worlds. Therefore, it is time to get the globalization story right and understanding the rise of emerging and frontier markets, especially China, is the way to do it.
