Intel’s Craig Barrett says that private companies can’t go it alone when trying to make a difference in developing markets, and neither can governments. In a visit to Malaysia, the chairman of the chip giant stopped off at Penang, where the company has committed itself to help local schools. Barrett, a former professor at Stanford University, is a big believer in education, especially in developing teachers. Barrett also appeared at the 16th World Congress on Information Technology where he delivered a keynote reaffirming his belief that real change can happen when governments and private industry team up.
In this video podcast PodTech producer Jason Lopez captured Barrett’s visits in Penang and in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
