Olympic Gold Medals and China’s LED Industry

Not long ago, Sun Yang, a Chinese swimmer who performed marvelously during the Olympic Games in London, said in response to a questioning audience: “Chinese people are actually more hardworking. I swim 20,000 meters everyday and have been swimming like this for many years. I don’t think westerners can all do like that. ”
China’s success at the Olympic Games comes from a variety of reasons. However, it is universally accepted that Chinese athletes won their gold medals through hard works. Western newspapers in London published again and again Chinese athletes in seemingly inhumane training, and rolling tears and twisted figures of young girls became insight stories behind China’s success.
The success in western markets of China’s manufacturing industry, including lighting and LED industries, may possibly reflect China’s population bonus and the “inhumane” continuous laboring. When the Greek lie on the beach and enjoy their coffee, China’s rural workers are working day and night for more overtime pay. The development of China’s manufacturing industry, if it is a success or a victory over the western world, is, to some extent, the success of the “Sun Yang Spirit”. The question is, while we produce hundreds of thousands of Sun Yangs, can we also produce one Steve Jobs?
The brand, innovation, R&D and IP have not yet shown their true values, and there is no corresponding economic benefit to support them in China. As Chinese people begin to realize that the gold medal cannot justify Sun Yang’s daily 20,000m swim, we may have to think that our manufacturing industry actually faces the same situation. We may have to ask: is Steve Jobs really smarter than us? Or, is he really so smart like that?
Are we Chinese stupid? If we question that, we are not stupid any more. We were stupid when we took the wrong way. When 30 years ago we turned on to the right lane, the whole world was shocked at the result. Today, so long as China’s manufacturing industry realizes that we must take a new road, a road which westerners have already proved to be correct for us, we are sure to succeed in every way with the "Sun Yang Spirit”.
