Access Partnership’s Senior Policy Manager for Asia & US, Xiaomeng Lu, has contributed to the CSIS’s report titled, “China’s Uneven High-Tech Drive”. The report, with contributions from leading American and Chinese experts, provides a dispassionate assessment of China’s high-tech drive and the implications for the United States and the global economy. The first section examines the overall trajectory of Chinese innovation. The second part takes an in-depth look at several prominent cases – 5G, AI, autonomous vehicles, semiconductors, and commercial aircraft. Collectively, this analysis indicates a highly uneven record of performance, with substantial successes and major problems. The report’s final section suggests how, in light of these findings, the United States and China should address the challenges in technology innovation and their broader relationship.

Among the key highlights:

  • Scott Kennedy (CSIS) offers a framework for explaining the systematic patterns in the level of China’s innovation success across various industries.
  • Paul Triolo (Eurasia Group) details China’s ambitious efforts in 5G.
  • Xiaomeng Lu (Access Partnership) suggests why China’s initiative in artificial intelligence is likely to run into major obstacles.
  • Alexander Hammer (USITC) looks at the close relationship between American exports of semiconductors and semiconductor equipment to China.
  • Craig Allen (US-China Business Council) explains that China’s weaknesses in innovation are self-created and that both the U.S. and China need to take a range of actions to promote sustained innovation in both countries.
