Abstract

Singapore-New Zealand bilateral relations are long-standing and based on a close political, economic and defense ties. Being small in economic size and population, both nations have undergone some challenges in a bid to improve their national competitiveness and innovation landscapes. This paper reviews both countries in terms of how innovative organizations are networked and organized so that they can be productive. It leads to a comparison of policies and governance orchestrating innovation. Through these instrumental cases and multiple data sources over a ten-year period, this paper concludes with some generalization and lessons for other small emerging economies, especially those small developing countries in the tropics.
