China’s Competitiveness: Analysis and Policy Implications
January 31, 2013
CSIS and Japan’s 21st Century Public Policy Institute have looked at five Chinese firms (Huawei, Lenovo, Suntech, Shanghai Auto, and China South Locomotive), examining the factors that led to their rise, their current state of competitiveness, and the policy implications. In addition to the case studies, a report was also done on the Chinese industrial policymaking process. The policymaking report serves as a primer on the policymaking process and provides an in depth look at actual cases, including the strategic emerging industries policy development. This project was made possible by generous support from the Sasakawa Peace Foundation.
This paper, by Kiyoaki Aburaki of Japan’s 21st Century Public Policy Institute, presents reactions to the case studies, as well as presents policy implications and recommendations for the United States, Japan, and China.
