The power of digitization

A new digital revolution is coming to Asia, thanks to the explosive spread of smartphones. At the end of last year, 780 million smartphones were in use in the Asia-Pacific region (excluding Japan). The number is projected to reach 2 billion in 2018, when more than half of the region's population will have access to the Internet. Already, these gadgets are changing lifestyles across the region.
