China is a huge market. It is easy to make money by copycat, people do not have to be creative. The majority of people will lost the motivation for innovation.  In the contrast, when we look at our neighbour Japan, small market where the competition is fierce,the company must be creative, or they will be phase out.

I think about a Chinese proverb "impasse is followed by change". The innovation is about time on the market.

When the market is quickly developping and there is still a huge gap between westen business model or technical, the first action is to chase the trends. When market becomes competitive and mature, the situation will force people or company to find a new way or try in new field.

The culture impact, history problem, government policy could be the factors of barriers, but the innovation is never leaded or created by these reasons. The innovation usually happens when we look at the actual market and try to complete or even create the needs of customers.

I think the barrier between financial industry and creative industries is a big challenge for the creative industries enterprises to survive and prosper.  

Comparing to traditional industries, creative industries including advertising, art, fashion, R&D, video games, performing art … are hard to get investment. Both banks and VCs are very prudent of investing the new developed culture creative enterprises, for the reason that most creative industry enterprises are small or middle size enterprises with limited tangible assets. The creative industries mainly take intellectual investment, and its assets are intangible, like copyright, intellectual property right and etc.


Facing to this challenge one possibility for creative industries enterprises is to seek the support of related departments of the state. In Shanghai, technology companies can apply for the certification of high and new tech enterprise. With this certification, the enterprise can get Science and Technology Commission’s guarantee to get loan from the banks and or increase the loan limit. But more important thing I think is that the creative industries enterprises need to develop effective profit model and channel for products of creative industries, mostly culture products. SNDA free internet game is a very successful case.

The idea inspires me a lot.  So the barrier may not be the environment, but be the model we create. If there is an internal engine of effective profit model, no reason to have barrier again.
 
Thanks for sharing~

The first come up to my mind is people's mindset .people haven't realized the importance of creative thinking and the great financial profit that creative industry can bring. China still relies heavily on manufacturering industry with mass production of products with similar features, and OEM accounts for a lot percentage in the industry. These enterprisers tend to be producers only, rather than being an inventor. Nowadays, 3D printing has already been a hot topic almost all over the world, but still some traditional manufacturers cannot accept it, and don't take it as a revolutionary invention; instead , they would rather use the traditional machines.

Another barrier is the lack of creative ability and some companies' habits of copying and mimicking In China,we can hardly have companies like Apple, or Google, and there is hardly any epoch-making product like IPhone or IPad. Xiaomi phone might possibly be the iphone in China, but still most manufacturers tend to imitate these hits, rather than investing on R&D to create a brand new product or function.

A problem has to be raises is education. In China, since kindergarten to university, students have long received cramming method of teaching, and have been taught to recite textbooks and standard answers, without learning how to have their own original thinking and express own ideas. Thus, we are lack of creative talents to join in and make contributions to the creative industry.

Fully agree. Actually this barrier exists everywhere and all countries are bothered with it. If Chinese government can find an effective way to support nascent companies in creative industries to survive. That's the creativity.

Well, I give my brief thoughts on this issue.
In my opinion,there two main challenges we are facing, examination-oriented education system and lack of cultivation mechanism.
Rich talent with creativity is the most crucial factor for creative industries. But the bad news is students in mainland of china are supposed to be lack of creativity, because examination-oriented education system have killed their creative ability as children grow up. I think we do must uproot the bad education system the children are still enduring now, build new educational system to encourage and cultivate students’ creative essential.
The creative industries needs good cultivation mechanism. Excellent creative companies need enough fund,mature managerial mechanism, profit-sharing mechanism besides creative talent when they are on the successful road. Now we don’t have strong mechanism to support our potential companies. But the good news is some entrepreneurs already have went in for this job, such as Li Kaifu and his Innovation Works. His firm has devoted in helping many young creative companies blossom through teaching these companies how to build good managerial environment, how to choose correct direction for development, how to obtain enough capital from investors. I think we need more such kind of companies.

When it comes to some barriers in our economic development or transformation, the first concern flashed upon my mind is,

--Mitigate excessive administrative interfere in market economy--

Although the past 30+ years reforming and opening has witnessed China’s great achievement in economic development, it seems that our political reforms lag behind and fail to keep pace with it.

Our market economy, deriving and changing from original planned economy, was born with some distinct Chinese characteristics, which is determined that our governmental functions played an important role at the beginning of economic development. And now, after developing and cumulating in recent decade of years, it has ability to generate natural force to guide the market capitalism through its own competitive mechanism. Government should pay more attention and spare more room to focus on macro- economic control, such as fiscal policy and monetary policy, acting as a qualified visible hand in this market.

Unfortunately, today we still find plenty of administrative regulations and provisions flood in our commercial field, even restricting some normal business behavior. It is supposed to become kind of bottleneck in our further economic development somehow. As a result, transformation of a public service-oriented government is absolutely indispensable.

In my opinion, the barriers to develop creative industries in China are lack of the fair and transparent commercial environment for SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), and lack of the protection of the outcome of creative companies .

Creative industries are high risk industries, of course, also with high returns, and the development of creative industries are related to the development of those SMEs in creative industries. But in China government and state-owned enterprises control most economics resources , and this put many SMEs in very disadvantage position when they need compete or negotiate with those big companies , moreover, SMEs are also difficult to get finance support from banks compared to those big state-owned companies .

In addition, lack of the protection of the outcome of creative companies also makes those SMEs with good potential lose the chance to become a great company. Finally, it will be barriers to develop creative industries .

The challenges to develop creative industries are how to change people’s mindset, and inspire more people and companies to invest and join creative industries.

After 30 years rapid economic development, China becomes 2nd largest economic entity in the world. Many people accumulate huge wealth in recent years, and these stories are inspiring more people to chase their dream of fortune and want to achieve this goal by fast track; Many companies also prefer follower strategy and invest in manufacture industry instead of creative industry, so China becomes the world factory. I should say that the strategy works very well in past years (the situation is very likely to what happens in the early of 1960s in Japan ) , but as China economics develops and the cost of labor becomes higher and higher , it is time to change the way we think - the development of creative industries will benefit China economics in long term and bring better profit for companies .

In addition, currently education systems in China doesn’t inspire youth for creative thinking . The education focus too much on the result (how much knowledge student learns ) instead of the progress (how to learn and think ) , so the education might limit youth’s mindset of creative thinking .

In sum , the development of creative industries is very important to China future economic . Although China faces some barriers and challenges to develop its creative industries, but if we can overcome those difficulties , it will benefit China economics in long term .

I would like to discuss the topic "creativity" from a historical perspective, a nation's economics should be never separate from the fortune or destiny of a nation, in China's philosophy, "fell from the pinnacle of one's power" is a principle, no matter how powerful one country is, one day it will fall from its peak. China also follow this principle, China once hold 80% GDP of the world, it was the real center of the world no matter culture, economics, technology, etc. It was the peak time of China, but after 20th century, we disappeared from the stage of world.

Japan is one of the most creative countries in today's world I respect, especially when we take two phrases "Made in China" and "Made in Japan" to compare with each other, one will connect with cheap and low quality, but another will be more likely to associate with creativity and high technology.

But if we look back into history, China and Japan almost at the same time face the western developed countries' aggression, and at the same time to execute reform & open policy, Japan called MEIJI RESTORATION, China called WESTERNIZATION MOVEMENT, but result is Japan step into the developed countries group, China failed.

In my point of view, China was gradually recovering from Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895, the total nation was too weak at that period of time, no matter military, nation's spirit, even the economics(that time China total economics size should 10 times as Japan, but civil war The Taiping Heavenly Kingdom movement consumed too much nation's energy), we see from the facts Japan rose from that battle and become stronger in economics and military and formally moves on the way of modernization.

But China, took almost 118 years to recover from that war, we tasted the bitter of war, we formally began to develop our economics after World war II, feeding 1/5 of world population, tried to complete 100% elementary education target, now we finish our goal, wish to come back to the center of world competing stage, we use "made in CHINA" to stand but still could not come back to stage center, we are lack of "Creativity", doesn't mean we are lack of intelligence, the only thing we need is just the time. China will copy the Japan model, first stage is low price, and afterwards, huge number of skilled workers and creative thinking people with great minds will prove this nation will bring this world a big big surprise. Of course, it is a long road with obstacles and challenge, but with time, creativity will just like rainbow after rain, showing to this world.

After 2-day "intensive" studies and discoveries under prof.'s guide, I "pushed" also myself to think outside the box, in terms of barriers and challenges for China's further development depending on creativity.
As today's world turns out more and more to be a "village", what will be the stance of the other developped countries, especially western countries, who are currently much more "creative" as we learnd from much statistics during course? Will they let us develop and eventually support to improve the nation's creativity, or might probably set tricks or obstacles to prevent being caught up? I find it also important to take into account all these parameters/factors coming from outside of China.

Wow, it's so busy here! It seems I come a little bit late Razz Razz Razz 
Based on the hot topic the classmates discussing here, I would also like to share my opinions:
- China has been building up a well-off society, and Chinese residents are closed to living a comfortable life. Thus, people are starting to look for spiritual values, which speed up the creativity industries development.
- Creativity Industries – the key word is Creativity. Who can create? Talents! China is never lack of smart people, but the current education system is killing the innovation ability of our kids. Copy and repeat makes students losing the ability to think, to solve the problems and to create. Talents like oars, are driving the industry. So, I think Education is one of the challenges we are facing to.
- Business model is also one of the barriers. In the past years, more investment came to China because of the labor cost is much lower than Europe. So many Chinese companies are OEMs. They are just producing the products which are designed in other countries. “Made in China” became a sign. So if Chinese companies would like to change the situation, they have to change the business model, pay attention to concept innovation and design creativity.

Firstly, I would like to say I strongly agree with this statement: Future economic development of China depends on its ability of develop its creative industries. Actually, this is a trend of developing for every country.

For China, there is no exception, it will face many challenges and barriers.
1. The Revolution of Education System.
The current education system is a machine, producing high-score student. Chinese students are well-known about its ability of doing the exam and homework. Compared with the foreign students, especially the ones from developed countries, Chinese students’ ability of imagination is very weak. When facing a problem, everyone is trying to find the ‘correct’ answer. Their minds are limited by their learning experience. In this case, it is very difficult to provide the creative idea after they graduate from the school.
Chinese government should take this problem seriously, and they have no time to waste if they really want to chase the developed countries. The change is supposed to be implemented from the kindergarten’s system. By doing this, it is possible to let the creative thinking become a good habit.
2. The improvement of the legal system.
We may realized that the current legal system still has many bugs. More than ten years ago, when we were enjoying the digital music from the computer, we were getting used to download it freely. As time goes by, when people realized that the copyright is needed to be respected and paid, people just can’t stop doing that. At that moment, we cannot find any suitable legal items to regulate this behavior. This is an example why I worried when we are developing creative industries.

1. Talent development: encourge internal transfer or buying talents from different industries, which may burst to more creative ideas and even transform an industry model.
2. Benchmark: My company Ford is reserved in some way of culture.Many systems are soley developed in its global oraganiztion in Ford's way rather than benchmarking most leading approach in the world. Making changes means consuming time, energy, traning resources, smart failure, etc. But more recently we see a combination of technology with Autos. SYNC, a technology we customers can use mobile to control and master your car is such a cool thing.

From personal persctive,
I look forward more discussion and knowledge exchange on and off class.

(Continuously)

--Improve efficiency and fairness on resources deployment by industrial restructuring--

Two topics related to our industries are boiling much violently among citizens or netizens: monopoly capacity and excess capacity.

It is true that minority of national state-own enterprises occupied some main industries in China though monopoly or oligopoly. Unquestionably such business mode deprives the rights or opportunities of foreign capital, private capital as well, to pursue high extra profit. Besides this unfairness, another disputed point is the efficiency of state own enterprises, which causes more inharmonious phenomenon compared with the rapid growth of our market economy.

While some resources are far away from efficient capitals, we also find a number of over-capacity industries come out to our horizon these years, spanning auto, steel, shipbuilding, textile, electronics and information, light industry etc.. Now authorities encourage to merger and acquisition in these sectors by establishing special fund to implement transformation or some new measurement such as energy conservation, emission cut, etc. Nevertheless, sunk cost is irrevocable and it just shows us the urgency of enhancing economic restructuring from this reverse perspective.

From my perspective, Chinese government plays a vital role in the development of creative industries.
On one hand, the education system must be changed first. Although we are in 21 century, the Chinese children and parents still have heavy pressure from the traditional examination. The children are encouraged to recite and try to remember the stupid formula, historical events and grammar, etc. I believe their brains which dominate the memory function maybe very strong. What about the creative part? The professor told us that use it or lose it. We are losing our creative brain. I felt sad when I wrote this part. I’m not sure when this Chinese dream can come true. However, let’s start from us, the young parents or the to-be parents. Let’s pay less attention to children’s exam score, but encourage them to play more, read more (not the text books) and take them to travel around with us. It’s another T shape contains two key elements for creativity, knowledge and experience. And when we expand our horizons, we’ll realize that life is a journey with many choices and surprises.

On the other hand, the government should establish the policies and legal terms to protect IP rights.
I noticed that my fellows had discussed a lot here. I just want to add one point that law is the bottom line of IP right protection but the cost is very high. The creative company may not survive even though it wins the lawsuit. Therefore, we’d better set up a special institution to help the company find the evidence and supporting.

Creativity may not be a big idea to create something brand new. It can be small improvements in our daily life and work. Nowadays, most people in China pay too much attention to the result of their effort, and they rarely lay emphasis on the details.
I want to share the experience when I was travelling in Turkey. Although Turkey is not a large economy entity in the world, and it has not cosmopolitan city like Shanghai & Beijing, the human-oriented services there impressed me very much.
Once I withdrew 100 TL from ATM machine, instead of a 100 TL note, the machine paid out one 50 TL note, two twenty notes and one 10 notes. This is a very simple creativity which will bring us much convenience.
In my opinion, economy development in not only about how to make more money, but about how to accomplish every little task with high quality in daily work. Every little improvement may bring out creativity and innovation.

a lot of peers indicate that government should do better and be creative also, however it would be linked to the political improvement and creation, it would last a long time and it seems hard to be driven by the masses. therefore, lets firstly talk about what we could contribute personally.

Future economic development of China depends on its ability to develop its creative industries. Discuss the barriers and challenges facing such transformation

The “Made in China” has won the gable market in recent years via the way of low-price product and cheap labor, however, the world is changing every day. China must find its own way out through innovation before other countries offer more competitive price and cheap labor. Here are some barriers and challenges for China to develop its creative industries:
1. Government support
The government should not only support companies that have creative product, technology or new business model creation but also should set systematically criteria about innovation ability which could be a benchmark for the supporting from the government, no matter the company is small or large.
What’s more, the government should also enhance the intellectual property rights to create a good environment for the entrepreneur to keep the advantage of their innovation in their industries. Only in the way that the companies could have some competitive advantage through their innovation, the more companies are more willing to pay more attention or invest on its innovation.

2. Environment protection and sustainable development
After suffering the PM2.5 pollution and contaminated products reported almost in every industry in China, another challenges for the entrepreneur is how to balance the innovation and sustainable development. The entrepreneur should have some kind of restriction in environment protection and sustainable development when it comes to innovation.

3. Education needs to call for more deep thinker in innovation rather than just copy-paste in the conceptual age
Since David Winer’s launch of the first online journal, no one conceived that the blog concept would develop into the fourth most popular communication network, after e-mail, BBS and instant messaging. As a personal Readers Digest of the network era and a Magellan of the information age, a blog is not only penetrating our way of living but it is also changing how we learn and communicate. A lot of new words have been derived from the term blog, including diary blog, knowledge log, klog, moblog, photolog, audioblog and videoblog. Now it come the Microblog and Weixin. No matter what form it is, each with the purpose of frequency, brevity and personalization, myriads of Chinese people are precipitately plunging into the World Wide Web to set up their own blog. Some people write about their latest bagatelles to share with friends, while some write to demonstrate their literary, artistic or various talents, and some even write in hope of attaining fame and fortune. People are highly occupied by all kinds of such information and waste a lot of time on it; eventually they are used to the pattern of copy-paste. In my opinion, we should control ourselves in this new medium and not enslave ourselves to any form of indirect communication. Especially, the entrepreneur should keep thinking independently in innovation rather than just copy-paste in the conceptual age.

4 Major barriers in front of chinese creative industries

Post by WANG Yingying on Sun Sep 15, 2013 12:22 pm

In today’s world, more and more conflicts and disputes in the international environment are caused by the technology competition, and a key leverage is the creativity and innovation ability that decides the winner in this battle. China has realized that to develop creative industries is the country’s primary task. However, it has to overcome many big barriers, which block its development path.  From my point of view, there are 4 major road blockers:

1) The internal and external incentive mechanism for industrial creativity and innovation is missing.
In China, the fundamental industrial companies are mostly state-owned, e.g. telecoms, electricity, energy, oil, transportation, manufacturing, and aviation & aerospace. These companies to a deep extend are driven by the national policy and mechanism. However, the incentive environment for industrial creativity and innovation hasn’t yet formed at the national level. Therefore, the enthusiasm of creative industries is pressed.

2)There is a lack of an effective intellectual property protection system which helps Chinese creative industries breakthrough the technical barriers set by foreign countries.
In 2003, Cisco, the United States communications equipment manufacturers sued Huawei, accusing Huawei infringing its software patent. In 2005, SONY Corp sued BYD the Chinese battery manufacturer, accusing BYD violating its patent. Similar incidents occurred again and again during recent years. The solution relies on a proactive and precautious intellectual property protection system back supporting Chinese creative industries.
 
3)Chinese industrial standardization is far behind the developed countries.
Before the concept of ‘standardization’ was brought in china due to the globalization, Chinese industries rarely built standards that were widely appreciated and accepted among their international peers. Nevertheless, standardization is a very effective means to consolidate the know-how of any industrial creativity and innovation and protect them from abusage. In other word, many developed countries use their specific standards to set up barriers against Chinese industries.

4)Chinese industries need open their door and communicate with the international peers.
Some Chinese companies close their doors to develop, lack of communication with their peers. Therefore, they can’t get in the fast-changing world, or obtain the cutting-edge technologies, which drag them moving towards creativity and innovation.

yesterday we have a presentation which invited the founder of SPIDER, a company with focus on the culture delivering. from the discussion, i think china has a bright future on its culture product, but the problem has been the limited human resource and channel management. so far, almost all the companies in the creativity industry has not high profit margin, and largelly blaim to the limited market audience.
