Liu Chuanzhi, the founder of Chinese tech company Lenova Group, said in a recent speech that the U.S. is forcing China to decouple from the world. He called on Chinese entrepreneurs to fight against such effort, and continue to open up, integrate with the global economy, and support reform efforts.
Below is an edited version of his speech at the China Entrepreneurs Forum:
Chinese entrepreneurs are an important force in China’s social and economic development. However, if we don’t know the history of China, we don’t know what we’ve been in the past, how we were timid, miserable and poor, and we’ll have no motivation to make happiness for Chinese people.
