Setting sights on innovation for 2016 and beyond  

 

Chief Executive Officer of ASEAN and Pacific, Mr Fabian Wong, shares his direction this year and into the future. The company’s refreshed brand promise, “There’s always a way to make life better through unexpected surprises”, sets the tone for upcoming Philips innovations.

Mr Wong believes that In today’s economic landscape, the way to stay ahead of competition is to create value in everyday living. He noted that technology is changing the way we do things. However it is not technology, but human-centred innovation that will take us a step further.

"We hope for a stronger focus on fostering and harnessing technological innovations to drive value creation in Singapore”

He believes that innovations developed locally, in particular, will benefit Singaporeans the most.

"We would like to see greater encouragement from the Government to create ecosystems to provide more and better opportunities for businesses here to co-innovate and ultimately, create value for the Singapore society to continue growing.”
