A growing power in the Far East
Recently, I talked to a Turkish entrepreneur who has been living in Silicon Valley for the past 10 years. When I mentioned the 12-day GES 2016 press tour, he told me, "If I were 20 years old today, I would not take a job in the U.S. or Europe but in Singapore." Seeing me very surprised, he began to list his reasons: "For of all, they do not require any visa for Turkish citizens. It is enough for entrepreneurs to present a long-term business plan in order to stay instead of making you work hard for a Green Card. Second of all, you have a chance to reach out to all communities who speak English and Chinese. In other words, it is a true bridge between east and west. I can say that Singapore is a good place for entrepreneurs who want to involve in global business." What my friend said can be a good model for entrepreneurs who have already established their business model and want to grow. However, Singapore's enterprise variety might be limited in terms of the number of laboratories and human source.
Can China replace Silicon Valley?
I have come up a news article discussing whether China can be a new Silicon Valley or not by mentioning Chinese internet giants, the growth of scientific production and human resources. I can also add another note as the number of supercomputers in China has already surpassed those in the U.S. The data might sound quite alluring at first but it is important to remind that if media power along with film and art industries are not well developed that other improvements might not be enough alone. To have a diverse entrepreneurial environment, democracy, human rights and justice play a great role, yet the positive environment seems promising.
