I also hope the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone can pave the way for continuous policy reform.
I feel China gorvenment policy is impacting the creativity. Many policies actually set the limit for business innovation, and the processes to apply for new things are dissapointing in many cases.

Education of our and next generation might be one of the biggest barrier on the way of innovation. The education industry in China is simply to teach children to learn what the government want them to learn and do what the government want them to do. When our children come up with some fresh new ideas, they are usually told that they are wrong, the right answer is balabala... Once our answer or reaction are not the same as what wrote in the textbook, the teachers will point it out and correct us. That is the reason why we see and react at things in the same pattern and we are losing our own minds gradually... Too many real and inspirational information has been blocked on purpose.

Another barrier is big Tolerance of copycat...If we just steal business ideas from other countries and execute it in China and even we get big success, it is still not our own ideas.

Additional remarks: limited and low profit you can get from innovation in China. Once you come up with a good business idea, it will be copied so fast that you cannot stop it... Then the severe competitions started by those copycats will shrink your profit heavily.

Above discussions of my classmates are really good and creative.

I have been thinking for a long time and trying to find out the root of barries when China is developing it's creative industries. A lot of classmates talked about calture, I'd like to share my point from historical point of view.

As we leard from first calss of Dr. Farhoomand, Creativity is to connect unconnected things. But with thousands of years of continuous history, China is one of the world's oldest civilizations, and most of time, China was ruled by big empire, all the things are connected , even new things should be connected by fixed way. China was like a "black hole", assimilated the new cultures and new things from outside, even though China was occasionally dominated by nomadic people.

Our history and experience is our biggest barrier, when we know too much who we are, it's very hard to think about who we want to be.

But good new is barriers provide us not only challenges but also chances. We have to put down the Ethnocentrism, open our mind and embrace the world and the future.

The barrier possibly stop the creative ability for most people, but when there is barrier, things sometimes turn to the other extreme, some genius will stimulate with some brilliant idea, which may not happen in a free zone.

I think that even in the majority of the history of China, the people were ruled by autocratic kings, and there were certain fixed principals on lots of things, the history of China is not a big barrier to innovation. Our ancestors prove to be very creative, with the success of the four great inventions, and the splendid history of China is filled with innovation. And showed by the lesson of history, China lost its leading position (almost in every field) in the world after the ban on maritime trade or intercourse with foreign countries in Ming Dynasty. So I think the most important thing to encourage innovation is being able to communication freely.
Surely the culture in China is not helpful for innovation, compared to those in western countries. In my opinion, the situation now is that China is used to being the “manufacturer”. Since most major technical breakthrough and innovation were accomplished by countries like U.S.A, China was satisfied to be the “tech-follower” and make profits with its advantage of low cost labor. But recently, western countries have moved their manufacture base to countries like Vietnam, the advantage that China used to enjoy is no longer obvious. In order to make money, corporations in China will be forced to look for other profitable opportunities, like making profit by innovations. The strong motivation, with proper guidance and encourage from government, will make innovation a major topic in China in the near future.
