How about doing your own basic research yourself. I am sure with 3 million STEM graduate each year and rising R&D funding China can do .Sofar they are in catch up mode concentrating on low hanging fruit of Application research But now they can't get access to the latest tech They have no choice but do it on their ownChina indeed need a reliable partner in developing its own core technolgies (be it Semicon, medicine, physic, aerospace etc) away from western based ones. No single country have the ability to stand alone in Science and Engineering field, which needs diverse and different ideas every steps. However, most countries capable of this is USA allies. We only left we Russia (not completely reliable) as a tech partner. So what can China do to secure its own future as Technology power house?
