JEAN-SE­BASTIEN JAC­QUES

CEO of Rio Tinto

China Daily (USA) - - G20 2016 CHINA -

One of the things that im­pressed me most about Pres­i­dent Xi’s speech was his em­pha­sis on in­no­va­tion and tech­nol­ogy. By plac­ing so much im­por­tance on in­no­va­tion and tech­nol­ogy, he was re­in­forc­ing the idea that the driv­ers that tra­di­tion­ally used to sup­port global eco­nomic growth are dis­ap­pear­ing and that we have no choice but to seek newways to en­cour­age in­vest­ment, jobs and trade. It was clear that he firmly be­lieves in­no­va­tion will be one of the new driv­ers of growth for the in­ter­na­tional econ­omy.
