One major difference between Western and Chinese culture is per capita productivity. The typical Westerner is four times more intelligent and innovative than the typical Chinese (a purely cultural phenomenon, not genetic).
What China does to try to partly compensate for this is to quadruple their man-power. For example, while the USA only requires 300 million citizens to create the world's largest GDP, China needs 1.5 billion citizens to just produce half of America's GDP.
Also, with respect to super-computers, since China's CPUs are much slower and inferior to Western ones, they have to use twice the number of CPUs that the West does to create super-computers of equal net speed. The inferior ShenWei CPU uses the astonishingly antiquated 65nm technology with decades old speed of only 1.1 GHz.
So, for a nation to be a world leader, the per capita productivity is what is most important: the quality of the citizens matter, not the quantity.
China is currently poor quality. But, with the right cultural restructuring, this can completely change. China needs to learn from the Western culture and political system to better emulate them. Democracy is a must, of course. But several factors also come into play.
Good luck, China.
