THIS MONTH ON CNNS ON CHINA: INNOVATION

This month ‘On China’ is in Beijing to explore the nation’s innovative muscle. It is a country mired by piracy and copycat business models as well as an education system that rewards rote learning over creativity. With its economy slowing, China needs to step up its innovation game now more than ever.

CNN’s Kristie Lu Stout sits down with China’s technology commentator and investor Kai-Fu Lee, Baidu’s Chief Scientist Andrew Ng and CEO of the Chinese online lender Dianrong.com Soul Htite. They examine what it takes to nurture innovation and succeed and whether the government’s initiatives to promote innovation and technology can seep into China’s traditional industries.
