A Phoenix TV documentary (in putonghua and Cantonese with Chinese subtitles) released on 16 May traces the beginning of China's manufacturing industry where Hong Kong played an initial catalytic role. My interview appearances in the TV clip can be accessed at readings 10:14, 10:47, 13:15, 16:55, 19:26, and 20:34.
The documentary highlights the first 10-years (up to 2025) of a "Three-Step" manufacturing strategy to building China as a strong manufacturing power.
The focus is on the technological and industrial revolution, founded on China's practical need for economic restructuring. It is driven by innovation, intelligent transformation, reinforced infrastructure, green development and human capital with advanced manufacturing and high-end facilities.
The documentary emphasizes the strategic importance of accelerating manufacturing transformation and upgrading if China is to advance from a manufacturing big country into a powerful one by 2025.
