Everyone knows that China is on the fast track to becoming a truly international superpower, but can it maintain its success? Endless horror stories#151;from tainted pet food to railroad disasters#151;severely undermine the nation's aspirations and, as a result, China now finds itself at a critical juncture: it can adopt a more sustainable approach that will allow it to continue as a dynamic powerhouse, or it can fall far short of its incredible potential. In China Fast Forward: The Technologies, Green Industries and Innovations Driving the Mainland's Future, China business expert Bill Dodson takes an in-depth look at the sustainability challenges facing the country as it works to become a global economic leader. Exploring the Chinese approach to innovation#151;which relies heavily on reverse-engineering foreign technologies, rather than encouraging domestic creativity#151;and the ways in which heavy industry and new brands are being leveraged to build international standing, the book incorporates personal anecdotes and interviews to bring modern China vividly to life. If the country is to continue to develop, it needs to improve its ability to generate cleaner, more efficient energy to power its booming industries.
