Forbes, a global media company, focusing on business, investing, technology, entrepreneurship, leadership, and lifestyle, posted this article written by Jack Perkowski on the website. The article outlines how it was only a matter of  time before automakers would seek to integrate, and localize, their battery production.

Even though batteries are by far the costliest component in an electric vehicle (EV), automakers have been content to source battery cells and systems from a handful of well-established Japanese and Korean battery companies, and a growing number of upstart Chinese companies—until recently that is. With the prospects for EVs getting rosier by the day, not a week goes by, it seems, without news of yet another battery investment by an automaker. The transformation of the $3.0 trillion global auto industry is now firmly underway, and automakers are spending billions of dollars to catch up.

Jack Perkowski appears on The Point during their program devoted to the 70th anniversay of the founding of the PRC to discuss China’s development over the last 70 decades.  

On October 1st, the People’s Republic of China celebrated the 70th anniversary of its founding in 1949. Over this period, particularly in the 40 years since Deng Xiaoping’s Open Door Policy was announced, over one billion Chinese have been lifted out of poverty, and the country has emerged as the second largest economy in the world. In celebration of the occasion, The Point, a popular weekday prime time opinion show on CGTN hosted by Liu Xin, devoted a special program to this important milestone. CGTN is the international English-language news channel of the China Global Television Network Group.

Jack appeared on the show’s panel, which included Hannah Ryder, CEO of Development Reimagined, a consultancy, and Dr. Yutong Li, Head of the Centre for Sustainable Agricultural Mechanization at the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific. The wide ranging discussion moderated by Liu Xin addressed such questions as:

  • What has China’s development meant for the United States and the rest of the world?
  • What has made China’s development possible?
  • What role has government policy played in the country’s development?
  • How have China’s policies been developed?
  • Looking to the future, what does China need to think about?

Toward the end of the show, the discussion turned to the thorny issue of the current relationship between China and the United States. To provoke a reaction from the panel, Liu Xin said that many fear that the world is being fractured into two camps, and that, in the future, countries may have to pick a side. As the only “American” on the panel, she was interested in his opinion.
