In this sense, a talent hub and a knowledge/innovation hub can be mutually interdependent in some respect. This echoes the earlier observation that the three models of education hubs have close ties and are not mutually exclusive.

The design, implementation, and impact of each type of education hub can involve trade, labor, industry, and science and technology sectors. The key is an integrated approach with the core sectors and actors collaborating, not competing, to make the education hub successful and sustainable.
