A Chinese Communist Party-linked businessman and professor bragged about how the regime “copied its way to the world’s front row” in an unearthed speech.
Zang Qichao, a marketing expert and visiting professor at Xi Jinping’s alma mater, Tsinghua University, told a group of Chinese entrepreneurs that this plagiarism has allowed the regime to take a more aggressive approach to dealing with the U.S.
“We plagiarized wildly, copied wildly,” Zang admitted. “What intellectual property rights? What patented technology? We’ll get it first and deal with it later,” he added.
After four decades, the Chinese Communist Party has “learned everything, and can do everything ourselves,” Zang revealed before adding “When we look back, the factories are ours, the equipment is ours, the technology is ours, the patents are ours.” “The foreigners have all gone,” he emphasized.
The massive intellectual property theft allowed Chinese Communist Party officials to talk “tough” to President Biden’s Secretary of State and National Security Adviser at a recent Alaska summit:
“That’s why our Foreign Minister Yang [Jiechi] and Wang [Yi] could be so tough when they talked to the United States. [They thought] you have no right to talk to us in this way.”
“Zang is a Chinese professor, author, and businessman, who also chairs two companies, a communications company and investment firm. The companies’ clients include China’s state-owned banks and telecom firms. His brief remarks were first published on his Chinese social media channel on March 21 and have since been circulated widely,” The Epoch Times notes.
