Due to the two giant retailers’ market dominance, Samsung Electronics is now having difficulties establishing the independent retail network.

“Copycat strategy has led the Chinese industrial innovation”, said CKGSB Professor Teng Bingsheng at the 5th Asia Leadership Conference on March 4th in Seoul. He explained that “the technologies learned from the overseas products over the last 20-30 years has become a shortcut to our innovation”. Yet, Professor Teng commented that controversy still remains over the breach of intellectual property rights. Professor Teng highlighted that the Chinese government is putting much effort into creating a creative economy such as that of Korea. He also pointed to Samsung as one of the role models for both the Chinese private and public sectors since it reflects GE’s product diversity, Apple’s product innovation, and manages a close relationship with the government.
