China’s Silicon Valley has evolved over the past two decades from a low-cost producer and flagrant copier into a potentially dominant worldwide tech leader in the near future. From copiers to originators, Chinese tech titans are showing the way forward with leading-edge advances that rival the West.
In TECH TITANS OF CHINA: How China’s Tech Sector is Challenging the World by Innovating Faster, Working Harder & Going Global (Nicholas Brealey, September 3, 2019), Rebecca A. Fannin delves into the Chinese technology sector and its influence and implications worldwide, in tech sectors and beyond. The book is the go-toguide for those seeking to understand China’s grand tech ambitions, who the players are, and what their strategy is.
In TECH TITANS ON CHINA, Fannin discusses:
• Detailed profiles of China’s “tech titans;” companies making waves in the tech sector and the broad economy
• The tech sectors that matter most in China’s grab for super power status
• Predictions for China’s tech dominance in the next 10 years
• The challenges the US faces in trying to crack the “China Code” and why even the most digitally savvy companies struggle beyond the Great Wall
• What China’s great leap forward in the global tech economy means for the United States and its future leadership
Predictions that China could win a global tech race were once considered laughable. But the world's second-largest economy and its expanding tech empire can no longer be under-estimated. TECH TITANS OF CHINA explores this rapidly-growing empire and what it means for the rest of the world.
