On my point of view, the root of the problem is the traditional thinking model.  On the one hand, most people are concerned with achievements and “teaching to the test”, so that they don't have time to dedicate to “exploratory learning”. This thinking model cause they are afraid of the uncertain factors and failure. On the other hand, as the limitation of the national system, someone maybe has the good idea, but unable to execute. The innovation is exist, but all these problems made it very weak.

I have ever seen a news about a Chinese boy who is good at making paper planes admitted to the University of Rochester in the United States due to his creativity on making paper planes.Such kind of outflow of talent is a kind of barrier for China's creative industry development.As we all know compared with oversea education,China's tradition education focus too much on academic and overlook the importance on creativity development.This is a problem need to be resolved.

Of course, a sophisticate education system could not be more important. The tutors in middle schools and universities should let their students to learn anything they like, trigger their wired ideas, encourage them to do unlimited thinking. By doing so, our country could truly benefit from innovation.

Everything is constantly changing. Stable is relevant change is eternal.

The real challenge of the development of creative industry is not the existing challenge, but how we can be sensitive to the changes, and how we can creatively deal with the changing environment.

The real barrier is the environment which hampers the creative thinking and reactions to the changing market/environment. The criteria of such barrier environment could be:

  • The environment provides insufficient social security support- people therefore willing to safely become followers/copiers, and are afraid of trying (Chinese social welfare system).


  • The environment sets unscientific standard as model and force people to follow such standard (the traditional Chinese education mode).

I have thought about this topic for a while. My opinion is a bit different with my previous thought.

Creativity exists everywhere. It can be a new method to solve an old problem, can be a new approach to pomote the efficiency, and can be a combination of new and existing ideas to generate productivity.

With an open mind, we will see a more creative world.cheers

In my understanding, the creativity industry could be defined into 2 areas:

1. Increase the contribution of tertiary industry
There is a forecasting that till 2015, the tertiary industry will count 46.8% of total, and exceed the 1st industry. And creativity could largely help the service improvement.

The challenge will be the ability of innovation. Chinese are custom to be the follower, while the speed of original innovation could help us back to the leader position. We should encourage innovation, even slow down some development. Execution without thinking will be the worst thing in the world.

2. Help to do things smartly with creativity for existing industry
There could be some improvement of existing industry by improving the technology, changing the way of doing business or perfect internal capability. We need to get rid of the existing boundary, although this maybe the hardest thing for us.

The barriers will be continuously challenge yourselves, whether we are doing the right thing? How we can do things better? This sounds easy, but difficult to implement.

I think the most important thing is to protect the innovators' work and keep them motivated. From this point of view, firstly we need to develop a systematic law to protect intelletual property and other rights of innovators. Only the innovator could benefit from the creation, then they would be motivated to innovate again and again. Then, there will be the industry we call innovation industry.

Firstly, Chinese are accustomed to follow others idea because they do not make efforts to thinking differently. The reason why is that they always enjoy others’ ideas with low cost, even without cost, and earn money. Patents are not protected, even though there are laws. Such habit forms a climate of plagiarism.

Secondly, the labor resource in China is plenty, which gives a comparative advantage of Chinese labor cost. Such advantage makes China the biggest OEM country worldwide. Chinese are exploited by OEM model because the profits of manufacture in OEM model are too low in comparison with many resources invested. But a lot of businessmen in China are satisfied with such low profits.

Thirdly, there are too many companies that manufacture homogeneous products. Because of the over fierce competition, companies are exhausted by pursuing of low cost so that they have no time and resource to develop their creative industries.

In addition, lack of creativity is the predetermined result of current Chinese education. Such education discourages students to think different. Children are taught how to solve problems but how to find the problem, although the latter are more important.

Finally, in information era, technologies develop too fast to Chinese company to catch up. The bases of creative idea are changed before produced.

Feng Chaoyu wrote: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.

Agree! Sometime we are not learning. We just be trained to remember the formulas and knowledge but to use them.

A new day with cbi courses. Oops.
To be creative, we could now start to improve our education systems. Change the way of teaching everything as knowledges. Start to teach how to learn and how to think.

too many "copycat" to improve the creative industries in china. The legal system cannot protect they and the culture of Chinese cannot provide the energy of creative activities.

At this point, China is undergoing the transformation of economy's structure. In foreseeable short future, the contribution of traditional driving forces to GDP will go downwards. In 2012, the contribution of service industries to GDP reached record high - 44.6%, whereas that of industrial sector was 45.3%, almost the same level. It is doomed to a matter of time for the change.

Although it looks like a golden time for innovation industry, there are still some barriers to limit its development. Firstly, in spite of decline, the manufacturing is still supplying a strong power for China to maintain a fast growth, a rate no less than 7.5% annually. To break down the manufacturing's contribution, we can see that at this moment, China is still heavily relying on low-cost competition and low-end manufacturing, which make the economy growth unsustainable. To what extent China can tolerate the short-term loss brought about by getting rid of current manufacturing structure will determine the development of innovation industry.

Secondly, different from U.S., Chinese government, rather than the market itself, dominates the industy directions. Every five years, the central government establishes the guidelines which industries would be supported and which would be limited. It is a paradox. Innovation or creativty often disrupts existing patterns, and requires people to take risks. When innovation is framed by bureaucratic rules, it loses the ground to cultivate free thoughts and adventurous spirit. The government is supposed to give more room to let innovative industry develop in a more free and intrinsic way.
