Asia Pacific – Harnessing the benefits of automation in the Asia Pacific (Yixiao Zhou, East Asia Forum)

Automation has grown quickly in the Asia Pacific, with the region catching up to Europe and North America in robot density. Significant diversity exists between countries, with high levels of robotics adoption in Japan, South Korea and, increasingly, China, but much lower levels in other economies, such as India and Indonesia. Automation can help maintain the international competitiveness of firms and combat the headwinds of ageing populations and slowing labour productivity growth.
