The panelists will discuss how the internet has changed China’s social and economic scene in the last 20 years and why China has had so much success, even relative to many developed countries, in this area. They’ll also examine the dynamics of internet development in China and how they differ from that in the U.S. (especially Silicon Valley), and ask if it is still the case that Chinese companies are generally “copycats,” following the models created by leading U.S. companies.
