How does China’s pursuit of high-tech prowess shape its economy and society and its global outreach program? This talk will examine funding sources, decision-making structures, and important sectors that drive domestic innovation with particular attention to semiconductor sector (which is set to be the next “battlefield” in China’s drive for a technological high ground). Amid China’s drive for tech prowess, it will mobilize and leverage all the resources and players available at home and abroad, which dictates the course of China in the foreseeable future.
