It's no secret Xi wants the world dependent on China, but the time is rapidly coming that we must deal with this challenge, not by confrontation, but by creating a fair and transparent trading and collaborative relationship. A true deterrent exists in the mind of the beholder and currently Xi feels he has no deterrent to a dominant relationship with the rest of the world that will benefit no one, not even China. The value of collaborative relationships has been proved I feel best by TSMC under the guidance of Morris Chang, who stressed partnerships and relationships with others to build a world class company that benefits all, even those that have no direct dealings with it. TSMC has touched probably more people than any other corporation and most of the world's population use their products directly or indirectly. This is a model that Xi and other world leaders should follow. Morris Chang was not only a master of technology and how to advance it, but relationships and their benefits. He believed in win win relationships and has proved their benefits as few on this earth have. Morris Chang's thoughts, philosophies, actions and execution of projects should be a template for leaders of industries and countries world wide. Morris Chang, one of the world's greatest men when it comes to spreading benefits through work, knowledge and collaboration. We could all learn from him and I hope Xi takes note.
China’s leader, Xi Jinping, is pursuing a strategy to make the country’s economy more self-sufficient, while making other places more dependent on it than ever.
