ADDRESSING OUR CHALLENGES
There are many challenges faced by the cleantech sector, but those most relevant to the East are:
SMALL SUBSECTOR SIZE — Sub sectors with small market values, relatively low forecast growths are lower priorities for intervention. Companies in these sectors need additional support.
TECHNOLOGIES LIE IN OTHER SECTORS — There are certain other sub sectors where the technology is cross cutting and where it is difficult to find a specific focus for intervention, this includes ICT and Biotech in clean technology.
LIMITED SUPPLY CHAIN COLLABORATIONS — There is a vibrant and growing sector in the region but limited collaboration taking place between the companies in the region.
