Three years in preparation, the report of the Task Force (a 19-member group, with an additional eight-member working group on genomics and nanotechnology based at the University of Toronto), says science, technology and innovation have helped to largely eliminate poverty and hunger and driven remarkable economic growth in much of Southeast Asia and the Asian Pacific.
Says Dr. Lee Yee-Cheong, fellow co-ordinator of the report and president of the World Federation of Engineering Organizations: "The three great waves of technology – information and communication technology, genomics and biotechnology, and nanotechnology – must increasingly be mastered by the developing world for social and economic gain. If knowledge is power, technology is key to development."
