Irish entrepreneur-inventor Kevin Paul:
The receptivity and adaptability of the Chinese people to technological advances is amazing
Hello everyone! My name is Kevin Paul, and I'm an Irish entrepreneur-inventor, living in Lisbon with my beautiful wife Jianjing Gao. And I would like to give my thoughts on China's efforts over the last thirty years.
With its focus on ending poverty by creating a vibrant economy to support the people. China today is at the top table in technology, healthcare, construction, agriculture, communications to name just a few industries, and striving every day to get better and better, seven days a week. This effort has led to amazing advancements like the new space program and the Covid-19 response, including vaccine production and deployment in China and internationally.
When I first visited China with my wife-to-be Jianjing, I was given such a warm welcome by all the Gao family and made me feel at home. And I fell in love with the traditional family way of life. The food and the street food were amazing, completely different than the Chinese food I'd become used to in Ireland.
As a technologist what amazes me the most is the way the entire population absorbs technology and the way e-commerce has taken hold in China, and everybody can adapt and move very quickly. I wish the Chinese people all the success for the amazing changes that they have made in their lives over the last 100 years and I am sure the next hundred years will only be a magnitude greater for both China and the rest of the world.
