The western world has a perception that China is a copycat, and Chinese people do not innovate. The intensifying US-China trade war has further led Americans’ opinions on China through western mainstream media, and many American technology companies become more cautious about their IP protection when partnering with Chinese companies. However, China’s rising on economy is not deniable, and China is filing more patents than the US since 2012. Mr. Y.P. Chan, a successful business leader and consultant, as well as a researcher and lecture, will demystify the misunderstanding and share his own thoughts on the reality of Chinese technology innovation from a historical and a modern view. He will explain what China’s innovation looks like and why he believes innovation is one of the key forces driven China’s high-speed growth over the past 40 years
