Behavior steal and China’s asymmetric foreign policy

For a long time, Beijing has been condemned for the theft of intellectual property, not even hesitate to “brag of achievements” right on the forums ….

According to Vision Times, at a recent lecture at Tsinghua University in Beijing, marketing expert and visiting professor, Zang Qichao, boasted about the CCP’s strategy of modeling operations and realities. Business practices after stealing intellectual property (IP) and technology from foreign companies. The theft of ideas includes corporate espionage, cyber attacks, and building operations facilities through partnerships with foreign corporations residing in mainland China.

China’s theft of technology

Mr. Zang said, “We stole ideas, massively copied… what intellectual property rights? What is the patented technology? We’ll get it first and work on it later ”. He added, “When we look back, the factories are ours, the equipment is ours, the technology is ours, the patents are ours … The foreigners are gone.”

A prime example of the theft occurred in the semiconductor industry, when the Chinese company, Fujian Jinhua, was accused of stealing IP from the US company, Micron, and was later banned from making a refund. with US companies.

Due to lack of development expertise, Chinese semiconductor companies sought new hires from foreign contractors to compete on an international level, and they successfully recruited engineers from companies like Samsung Electronics and South Korea’s SK Hynix.

According to analyst Cheng Xiaonong, former editor-in-chief of Modern China Research, the reason Chinese companies lack the incentive to innovate is because research and development is related to risky investments. and costly may not succeed in the future. On the contrary, stealing and copying popular products will get immediate results.

China weaponizes trade and lures foreign companies

Many Chinese companies are subsidized by the CCP and gain market share from their competitors at a lower cost. Once cheap goods flood the market and countries increasingly rely on China to produce low-cost items, the goods can then be used as a weapon of trade for sanctions. countries are financially involved in international disputes.

During trade wars, China often punishes countries through tariffs or bans on imported goods. This past winter, despite the electricity shortages, China banned coal imports and imposed heavy taxes on alcohol imported from Australia.

China also entices foreign companies to do business within its ‘border’. Despite the fact that American corporations frequently encounter problems with IP theft and IP attacks from Chinese individuals and companies, businesses continue to seek access to the lucrative markets of China. China.

Tesla’s new factory in Shanghai is intended to supply Asian and European markets, but after a recent crackdown by Beijing to ban government and military employees from driving Tesla cars, it is unclear whether Will the company be pushed out of the country to support the domestic electric vehicle manufacturers?

Healthy competition between Japan and the United States has spurred growth

Companies that replicate American ways of doing business and innovation have actually benefited Americans in some cases, as evidenced by the rise of the Japanese auto industry in America. The Japanese mainly relied on the reverse engineering of American cars to create their own domestic automobile industry in the 1930s.

Japanese cars first entered the US market in the 1950s, but did not generate significant sales until the 1970s, after members of the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC) imposing US oil embargo has led Americans to buy more fuel-efficient vehicles.

Ultimately, Japan’s widespread car imports caused a trade imbalance that the Reagan administration resolved in 1981, when Japan agreed to limit the number of cars sold to the US under the policy. Voluntary export restrictions (VER). The restrictions have encouraged Japanese car companies to shift some of their manufacturing operations to the US and hire American workers.

Automotive manufacturing best practices have been shared between Japan and the United States starting in 1984, when a joint venture between Toyota and General Motors led to the establishment of New United Motor Manufacturing, Inc. (NUMMI) in California. With the cooperation and improvement of manufacturing standards, the Japanese auto industry in the US has flourished and now supports over 1.6 million American jobs.
