At the begining, we should define the concept of creative industries. Since those industries will have a positive impact on Chinese economic development, we deem those industries as a supplement for Chinese industrial segment, which used to be a weak point or totally blank area in China. However, there’re two possibilities of those industries in the world. They either can be a totally newly born concept in the world, or already matured. Thus, for different conditions, we need to set them apart and discuss them respectively.
 
In the sense of already matured case, all experience and lesson learned gaining from successful models are creative ideas in China. The biggest challenge for China is how to find them, realize them, assimilate them, make use of them, and finally exceed them. Not all cutting-edge technologies migrating to China can be successful. Adopting right, appropriate creativities and developing own technologies on the base of them is the recipe as well as the challenge of fast development for either a country or a company. The talent who can find and distinguish useful creative things from outside will be most critical.
 
And the biggest barrier is how to circumvent the potential lawsuit coming from companies being modeled. The best example is the rocketing rise of Samsung mobile phone business. After seeing the great success of iPhone, Samsung quickly changed its strategy of smart phone and accepted almost all concepts which can be seen on iPhone, including the interface, the mode of using (abandoned the stylus which was prevailing before and removed to finger use only), and even the size of the screen. Found being copied, Apple quickly took action and sued Samsung for copying several core technologies without being authorized. However, as we all know, the final result was Samsung won the lawsuit and now is the most successful mobile phone manufacture in the world. Modeling market leader is a good method for closing the gap, but the company should keep an eye on whether it will be sued for contravening the law and if so, weigh whether it will win the lawsuit without being impacted by the negative information.
 
To the extent of totally new concepts in the world, who can be the first person rolling out new ideas will take great advantages. Thus, from my opinion, there’re three obstacles might impact China most.
 
Firstly, how to reduce overlapping works and avoid reinventing the wheel. If we consider China as a company, we’ll find bunch of R&D departments are researching topics with little difference. This is caused by unclear work allocation and bad management. Almost all universities try to be comprehensive and lots of big companies try to take care of all aspects of the market. In so doing will deeply affect the depth and width and the quality and the efficiency of researching result and be hard to surpass other countries to be more creative.
 
Secondly, how to obscure the impacts from government. We cannot discount that current China government still plays an important role in judging the direction of development in most industries. However, the direction of one market should be determined by customers rather than the government. Impacts from politics will nip lots of creative ideas in the bud and that’s another barrier for China to be creative. For changing the situation, government should change its role from a dominator to a supporter, who are dedicated to supporting booming markets.
 
Thirdly, motivation. I acknowledge the concept mentioned in the textbook of CBI that motivation is one biggest components of creativity. However, for the purpose to be creative, the importance of external rewards arises too high compared with the importance of inner passion in China. That’s hard to be real creative without the fire in belly which can exceed limited resource. Doing research shouldn’t be a method for raking in money. Changing the ethos will be one big challenge in China so far.
 
There’re lots of other issues might impact the development of creative industries in China, like traditional education system in China, lack of communication with the world, without enough experts, or personalities of Chinese people, but I don’t think they are critical factors.  With the exception of illusory fortune or destiny, how to work effectively and efficiently will be the key issue for the development of Chinese creative industries.

The biggest barrier for most of comanpies is when a company can get huge profit through monopoly, no company wants to have the creativity idea. unfortunately the monopoly company ocuppys main market in China.

If being a copycat means low risk and easy money, why they should being creative? So I take the execution of the intellectual property rights protection laws as the most challenging task.

Let me try to give a brief on this topic base on my understanding.
If China wants to develop the creative industries, 2 ponits need to be focused on: education and investment enviroment, both have challenges and it may take long time to transform.

Education- Obviously talent is the foundation of creative industry. But current education system in China is not so good for developing creative people. From element school to university, chirdren are alway focus on to know what without thinking why and how. It kills creativty thinking even from childhood. It is one of challenges we are facing to develop creative industry if we don't have enough creativity talents.

Invest Enviroment - To develop an industry we need learn something from good ones. It may require govement to give more support and policy on invest enviroment to attract more good ones from worldwide. Learn and practice, grow ourselves and get stronger.

I like this topic, as a Chinese, to think about the future of our nation for future economic development.

For the barriers, in the short term, how can we stimulate all industries to be creative with policy support and encouragement by government.

In the long term, we need creative people and cuture. As mentioned by Chen Liqiang 2013968873, education is very important, can our current education system support or bring creative people...Besides, does our current social system strangle the freedom and thinking of our people from one way or another...

And the contemporary education system is a great obstacle to creativity. It seems that this generation, even next generation,  have little willingness to try things new with risk, because they are taught to find the right answer already existing so as to achieve higher scores. It will take several generation to change the way of thinking and conquer the misleading perception.

To talk about creativity, I believe Chinese people have the ability of creation or make new items, four great inventions would prove this. however, current China it seems not so many new things are created, people are fully engaged to chase short term interest, seek for physical pleasure, less and less people are focusing on creative activities.
To change this situation and develop creativity industries which would boost the future economics, i think the following three barriers or challenges would be overtaken.
Firstly, government would increase support commercially and politically. in China, an industry would gain good development when he obtains better supports from the government. but now the government still have a lot of space to improve.
Secondly, education system would be optimized according to the new demand, we are now developing people with professional skill, with rich knowledge, or with high academic ranks, but now we do not have Nobel Price holders from mainland China. To have creative talents we must have creative education.
Lastly, Enterprises, companies and single personals would change our values of pursuing commercial interests, start to think what differently we could make and what better we could make, in this way, we could change our way of working and life, and in this direction, we could start or be willing to think and make something really new.
To sum-up my ideas, we would gain the supports from government, change the education system, and act at once for each company and personal, we change then we could create.

For the barriers of China Industries innovation is domestic standard, only China try to use the lowest standard to meet the requirement of inland but export higher quality to other region.

Under the current background of China's economics system transforming project, Chinese government had paid a lot of funds and attention on the creative industries, like internet technology, robot production line, etc. However, some intrinsic shortcomings in Chinese economy will hinder the progress. 1,Talents' shortage,especially who has overseas background ; 2, Creative environment is not good enough due to shortsighted view for a new idea or a new product ; 3, We need to open education to advanced organization that could bring creative thought in ; 4, Increase the salary of such talents to incentive more graduates to come into this industry.

Why we have to be “creative”?

Let’s get this done right at the beginning. Some of the “new” idea here in China are just the localized version of western sample. Globalization is not only for economic but culture and lifestyle. We used to follow the mainstream created by the Western while in that way it is impossible for us to be creative.

Creative is not only about those fancy technology, but to look inside and find out the characteristic to call the instinct. The biggest barrier and challenge is to push the "unfollow" button.

Do we have real creative industries on Local? The inland corporation copied every ideas from international alignment. From political system to product specifiction, we alway named as Chinese characteristics, unfortunately, Looks like nothing on earth.

As it is mentioned by Lin Jinzhe 2013968562, if being a copycat can also bring high profit, no one would like to take the risk in creativity. One of the barriers is the environment to incubate creative ideas. Although internal passion has greater impact on creativity, it is also important to build up the environment in which talents don't need to only worry about risks or profits, but lay more emphasis on implementation of their creative ideas.

From my point of view, culture may be the main challenge we are facing. Most of Chinese believe in Confucianism. For two thousand years, we are educated to take middle way , respect and do not challenge authority. It will stop us to think beyond the box.
