Innovation-Driven Economic Development
Join James A. Lewis, CSIS scholar, and Dr. Hiroyuki Watanabe, Chairman of the ITS World Congress, for a conversation on the ways rapid investment in intelligent transport systems (ITS) and global trends in urban transformation are driving an exciting new era for economic development. The USA, Japan and Europe stand at the doorstep of new industries and jobs, disruptive technologies, environmental improvement, and enhanced community resilience. Later this year, over 90 nations will be represented at the 20th ITS World Congress in Tokyo, Japan. Detroit, Michigan and Bordeaux, France will host the 2014 and 2015 World Congress, respectively.
