Guys, don't throw a fit and scoff at each other like this.  Tellingly, China and some well-bred, intrepid Chinese thinkers invented lots of truly distinctive or ingenious stuff centuries agoooooooooooooooooooooo. However, there is no denying that America and American companies have invented more genuinely cool stuff in the last 20 years , as well as a set of sterling business principles or conceptions that have become the guidelines for Chinese tech companies, particularly the much-talked-about  out-of-the-box thinking  and in-house training.

  I reckon that it's still too early to say that Chinese tech companies are going to produce some ripsnorting , high-margin tech products that enable them to be the leaders of the pack, thanks to  bureaucracy, inertia or their reluctance to invest in human capital.  And it would be equally lunacy for us to keep talking about or even bickering over issues related to  China's gloried past and exceptional historic  inventions, not least because such debates are just useless now in 21 century.

  Chinese companies, if anything, will be able to  throw their weight around and roll out snazzy, profitable tech products sold in abroad , insofar as they hew to the high standard-quality control-championed by their foreign counterparts or competitors.  What's more, our Chinese companies should encourage their Chinese employees to think freely and set up a working environment in which individuality and independent thinking should be the norm rather than the exception. It's also a fair-based system or structure wherein all the useful information, business data  or resources will be shared and used by people wanting to invent cool stuff. In other words, they have to eradicate the fetters of  bureaucracy or flatten their hierarchical organizations or silos between each department.

   At any rate, American companies, for that matter, are still our teachers in this context.
