November 05, 2007

HOBOKEN, N.J. ¯ The Howe School of Technology Management at Stevens Institute of Technology will host the latest in its series of Executive Lectures this Friday, Nov. 9, in Room 104 of the Lawrence T. Babbio, Jr. Center, located at 6th and River Streets in Hoboken, N.J. The topic of the current lecture is "The Rise of Asia's Global Cities," and will be delivered by Mr. Sanjeev Sanyal, Chief Economist & Director, Global Markets Research, Deutsche Bank Asia, Singapore. Mr. Sanyal is the recipient of a 2007 Eisenhower Fellowship.

Asia's economies, especially India and China, are growing at an astonishing rate. This is leading to urbanization on a scale never seen before.

In the late twentieth century, says Sanyal, we saw the rise of East Asian cities like Tokyo and later Hong Kong and Singapore. Now we are witnessing the rise of Chinese cities like Shanghai. As India begins to emulate the "Asian Miracle," we will see it too will urbanize rapidly. All these cities are already competing furiously to become Global Cities like London and New York. Sanyal asks: Which ones will succeed" What will they look like" Indeed, why do we need to have cities in the twenty-first century"

As Chief Economist at Deutsche Bank Asia, Sanyal is a leading expert on the region's fast growing economies. He has worked extensively on financial markets, monetary policy, demographics, micro-finance and environmental accounting. However, he has a special interest in the growth of mega-cities and large financial hubs in Asia. An Oxford-trained economist and Rhodes Scholar, he also serves as an Adjunct Fellow at Singapore's Institute of Policy Studies where he is examining the economics of Global Cities and mega financial/business agglomerations. He will focus his Eisenhower Fellowship on the various dynamics that will drive twenty-first century Asian mega-cities. In particular, he will make detailed investigations and comparisons into human capital clustering (i.e., tertiary education), financial hubs, and urban re-engineering.
