China is on a war footing with their work schedules - the country now has 25 of the world’s top 50 tallest buildings, has the most engineering schools in the top 10 best engineering schools, most miles of high speed rail - much of this was accomplished in the last three decades.

2. China not only dominates many growing US electronics imports - from smart speakers to voice-activated products - accounting for 62% of electronics imports into the US, many US companies like Apple and Google rely on 🇨🇳: 73% of components in Microsoft devices are from China.

3. Under its “Made in China 2025” program, the Chinese government is funneling $300 billion into 10 strategic industries, including Artificial Intelligence, semiconductors and robotics. The avowed aim is to become global supplier of tech for commercial and military dominance.
