China’s intellectual property theft, which involves industries from biotechnology to communications to steel manufacturers and more, cost the American economy hundreds of billions of dollars each year. It should come as no surprise that the Red Dragon is looking at the nascent American fuel cell industry.
China has stepped up efforts to work with American businesses in a bid to acquire advanced technology, part of a drive to become a leading technology-innovation power. “China is pushing to further deepen technology collaboration with U.S. business and academic institutions as part of a national effort to transform its economy, including by putting China at the leading edge of global technological innovation...
Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. is putting a lot of cash behind its goal of serving 2 billion customers and creating 100 million job opportunities over the next two decades.

Speaking at the opening reception of the 2017 GeekWire Summit, Baidu president Ya-Qin Zhang discusses the Chinese search company's new office in Bellevue, Washington outside of Seattle and their push into AI and the public cloud.
Baidu is known primarily as a search giant in China, but the company, which just opened in office in the Seattle area, is putting its full weight behind artificial intelligence and its ability to change countless industries.
A close China watcher said here Tuesday that if China keeps its current pace in innovative industrial development, the innovative activity share in its total output will likely surpass that of the United States in about 18 months. Daniel Rosen, founding partner of Rhodium Group, said at a forum at Asia Society that in the second quarter of 2012, innovation accounted for 30 percent of total Chinese output, while today the share has come up to around 34 percent.
