NZ - The way to boost "innovation nation"

Share |
Niche industrial player sees the opportunities to provide high value technological services to foreign markets. Laznatech is merely one type of industrial innovation to be found in NZ, and there is room for many more. This is the type of innovation culture that NZ needs to promote. So you might ask how it can go about that:
1. Provide a more encouraging culture at home to attract creative foreigners; not least all those NZ expatriates who might have left for good.
2. Reform the education system to make it more 'externally focused' like Australia's, and more critical thinking.
3. Encourage external relationships in trade and personal interests.
4. Encourage local govts to set up region or national-based hubs in major trading nations to promote trade, familiarity and cultural exchange. I look at NZ efforts at this, and its poor in execution. i.e. Wanganui, my town, has a sister city relationship with Toowoomba in Qld, and some small town in Shizuoka, Japan. The problem with this strategy is that its 'boring' sameness, not interesting 'differentiation'. Why would they come here, and why would we go there. These relationships we defined by their proponents, who as individuals, happened to like living in Wanganui. This fails as a community stretegy. Its success was subsidised by its proponent, then unthinkingly supported by the state. I would suggest Hanno should drop its relationship with Toowoomba because its a competitor, not a prospective partner, and drop its relationship in Shizuoka, and adopt one with Hanno, Saitama. Why? Hanno is likewise a small town, but its on the edge of a big city (Tokyo). There are many factories there. Another good option is Mito, north of Tokyo, close to the airport. Do the same in India, and you just might turn Wanganui into a future IT hub, developing call centres, and VOIP technologies for pertinent industries. Expect technology costs for such centres to come down in future.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life.
