CogitAsia Podcast: Growing Digital Dragons — Understanding China’s Technology Innovation Ecosystem

In this episode, we dig into China’s technology innovation efforts and explore how China has become the tech workshop of the world.

To give context to China’s efforts to innovate in technology, Dr. Scott Kennedy, director of the CSIS Project on Chinese Business and Political Economy, sat down with China tech sector expert Alberto Moel – a senior research analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein, a premier investment research firm based in Hong Kong. Scott and Alberto discuss the emergence of Shenzhen as a tech capital, the rise and fall of companies in the Chinese smart phone market, key Chinese tech firms you probably haven’t heard of yet, the future of technology product development in robotics and automation, and what countries like the United States could do in response to China’s innovation drive.

Hosted by Will Colson. Audio edited by Liz Mayes. Written and produced by Jeffrey Bean.
