Just as innovation itself is continuously self-redefining, the awards are meant to promote continuity in innovation", said Dato' William Ng, president of Enterprise Asia.
Among the notable recipients are Malaysia's AIA Bhd, Taiwan's HIWIN Technologies Corp., Singapore's Olam International Ltd., Philippines' Unilever, Indonesia's PT MRT Jakarta, and United Arab Emirates' Roads and Transport Authority.
Organized annually by Enterprise Asia, the International Innovation Awards is among the most coveted global awards for innovation and aims to recognize best innovations in the categories of Product, Service & Solution, and Organization & Culture.
