The newsletter is based on discussions and fruitful interaction on the topic of “Global Technology: China’s Industrial Innovation and Internationalization” which happened in Bologna, during the China Goes Global Conference, in July 2023. The OEET promoted this panel session to discuss the radical change taking place in the Chinese system of industrial innovation. The main purpose of the Panel was to share comparative conceptual and empirical insights, drawn from case studies on different key industries. The panel shed light on the evolving landscape of Chinese industrial innovation, related to internationalization drivers, processes and patterns. Policy implications were also discussed, in the current conflictual geopolitical environment, for global supply chains disruption and the role of other emerging economies.

The panel was chaired by Vittorio Valli, President of OEET, with presentations from Ignazio Musu (Università Ca’ Foscari of Venezia), Francesca Spigarelli and Gianluca Sampaolo (China Center - University of Macerata), Hua Wang (EmLyon Business School) and conclusions from Giovanni Balcet (University of Turin).

The newsletter summarizes main trends, challenges and perspectives of three key sectors of the Chinese economy as the energy, chips and car industries, including economic, geopolitical and industrial implications.
