A special issue of International Journal of Chinese Culture and Management
China is not the only fast-growing emerging economy that is making waves around the world. China’s current economic growth rate is approximately 9 percent annually, which is impressive economically. Its contribution to global GDP growth since 2000 has been almost twice as large as that of the next three biggest emerging economies (India, Brazil and Russia) combined. Some even refer to China as the mother of emerging markets and transition economies.
Directly or indirectly, the Chinese economy has influenced interest rates, prices for raw materials and wages in the western established economies. Currently China is the most R&D intense of emerging market countries and is seventh of all countries in the world. Its economic power is exemplified by the fact that it is expected to be the fifth largest source of outward foreign direct investment during 2004-2007. Working with Chinese firms has become a reality for a majority of managers in Western countries. With its high growth rate, the presence and impact of the Chinese economy will only become larger.
With China’s importance on the global scale set to grow faster than ever, this Special Issue offers a unique window to observe the state of the art of innovation and technology management that will chart the course of the future in this region of the world.
