The Morning Briefing: Innovation in China

Posting in Government

"The Morning Briefing" is SmartPlanet's daily roundup of must-reads from the web. This morning we're reading about innovation in China.

1.) Will China 2.0 out-innovate your company? After thirty years as a “workshop for the world,” China is steadily and resolutely moving up the value chain.

2.) China wakes up to innovation. Will the cure for autism be discovered in China? A decade ago this would have been a preposterous question. But today people such as Wang Jian, a genetic researcher with a liking for cargo pants, believe the answer could be yes.

3.) The long road to financial sector innovation. Over the past two decades, China has made great achievements in the innovation of financial services and instruments. But major gaps still exist between China and developed countries.

4.) Chinese enterprises urged to innovate. The central government is urging enterprises to make more efforts to improve and innovate.

5.) Silicon China: high-tech innovation on the rise. America should worry about losing its technological leadership, writes Asia Sentinel's Clyde Prestowitz.
