Here comes the boss! Ren Zhengfei: Six impressions of the United States make me sad
"Chinatown"-Official media of Chinese Australians
作者:Ren Zhengfei was born on October 1944, 10 in Zhenning, Guizhou. Founder of Huawei, a giant in the global communications industry.
Why did the well-known American Wangan Computer Company, which had an annual sales of US$35 billion three years ago, declare bankruptcy protection now? Why would a group such as Mitsubishi Japan withdraw from computer production? With this question, I went to the United States for an investigation. The plane flew through Tokyo, over the Pacific and the continental United States, and arrived in Boston on the other side of the Atlantic. As soon as I went abroad, I fell ill. I started to vomit at the Hong Kong airport. After more than XNUMX hours of jet lag, I continued to toss to the central American city of Dallas.
During the entire inspection period, there were six impressions of the United States that made me feel sour.
Boston is a beautiful city. It is also the birthplace of the Civil War and the window through which Europeans developed the American continent. The old houses are very neatly cleaned, and the exteriors are all painted with plain paint. The beauty of this city is that small patches of forest are kept everywhere in the city. The grassland is full of green fungi along the street, and broad-leaved trees are planted on the grass. The leaves of these maple trees and oak trees all fall out in winter. It is autumn now, and the leaves are red, green, yellow, yellow-green, brown, crimson...under the sun, they are all transparent and picturesque. The falling leaves covered the green grass, like a colorful carpet. This natural scenery has to overshadow the Fragrant Hills of Beijing.
The protection of the environment by the American people over the centuries is amazing. In the tree on the street in New York, little squirrels ran around. In front of some hotels, in the evening, hundreds of birds fell on each tree. It is very natural for birds to fly into the crowds and houses. Our land is roughly equal to that of the United States, but Tibet and Xinjiang take up a large part, and the mountains of the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau take up another part. The remaining less than half of the country is home to 12 billion people. Lack of education funds, low cultural quality, blind breeding population, even the corners of the fields have been hollowed out, how can there be mountains, forests and grasslands?
Dallas is a city in central Texas. Texas was originally a grassland and was originally relatively poor. It suddenly became the rich state of the United States because of the discovery of oil. Dezhou has Inner Mongolia like our country, and the development of science and technology has been triggered by petroleum. my country’s Daqing’s high-tech development zone calls on scientific and technological personnel to go to the sea to establish various industries that are separated from oil. After a few decades, when Daqing’s oil dries up, a Dezhou science and technology zone will appear in China. Any leader must have a longer vision.
The city of Las Vegas is a vast sea of sand, especially at night, perhaps the most beautiful city in the United States. Except for the hotel and the International Conference Center, the entire city has no buildings. The lobby of the hotel is a casino, so it has the ability to handle nearly a million people at the same time. Buildings such as Caesars Palace are jaw-dropping, so beautiful and magnificent. In the hotel lobby, there is a tropical rain forest.
We stayed in CP for more than a day and a half, and we were leaving Boston the next day. For the remaining half day, it was drizzling again. In the rain, everyone visited the campuses of Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In the campus where many heroes have been bred for the world, almost a quarter of the students are Asian. During this inspection, we generally believe that the United States has a high level of education and culture, and that science and technology are relatively advanced. In a highly developed information society, low cultural quality is like a chain that hinders the entire economic development. Developed countries have used some silicon chips to exchange a lot of our peanuts. We often think this is an unequal exchange.
Americans have a down-to-earth, very dedicated and earnest spirit, a work style of excellence, and no conservative academic atmosphere. It is indeed worth learning. Americans do not have as many lofty ideals as the Chinese, nor do they have the empty ambitions of the motherland and the world, nor are they full of illusions like ours. Space shuttles, large-scale silicon chips, ultra-large computers, ultra-miniature terminals, advanced and excellent telecommunications equipment, and test equipment are created by the hard work of the American people and cannot be plundered.
Underdeveloped countries have paid a large amount of primary products in exchange for a small amount of high-tech products from developed countries. The former is available everywhere and the price is regular, while the latter is unique and the price is arbitrary. It is used to repay the remuneration of venture capital and outstanding talents in development and production. This is not plunder. With emotion, I recall that some ancestors in the XNUMXs and XNUMXs rushed to educate and save the country, which was not understood by the society, and their patriotism was misinterpreted. In the XNUMXs and XNUMXs, the education saving the country didn't even dare to mention it. I still didn't understand it. On the contrary, I believed that the more I read, the more stupid it became. We were touched by the scene, with some emotions, and also shouted out for education to save the country.
People say that the eighteenth century is the century of Spain, the twentieth century is the century of the United States, and the twenty-first century is the century of Asia. Isn't this a glimmer of light? With the implementation of the market economy policy of the 21th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the competition for talents will inevitably take place on China's land. The more educated people get richer, this gap will be irreparable in the XNUMXst century. Therefore, our company's policy of gathering outstanding talents and increasing the concentration of talents is correct, although it temporarily increases production costs.
The more prosperous we are, the more we develop science and technology, the more we develop science and technology, the more we attach importance to education, the more we emphasize education, the more talented people come out, and the more talented people come out, the more prosperous the economy will be. Only when knowledge is valuable, will there be a desire for talent, and when there is a desire for talent, will education be valued. Thinking that most of the rural schools in our country are still in dilapidated houses, thinking that the Hope Project has not been highly recognized in China, and worrying about the country and the people, it casts a shadow on our hearts.
Without revitalizing education, it is impossible to revitalize China. No matter how poor it is, education cannot be poor. my country’s educational conditions are still very difficult. The population is growing day by day, and the educational opportunities and levels are lower than those of developed countries. The Bell of Hope Project, ringing over and over again, is breaking people's money dreams. Taiwan and South Korea are our role models. A large number of scholars who have returned to work in Taiwan have added blood to Taiwan's economy.
Leaving Boston, took a six-hour car ride to New York and lived in the Chinese Consulate. After a few meals of corn paste, it was so fragrant. The biggest problem in the United States is not getting used to eating. Americans eat very simply. New York is the largest, most prosperous, and dirtiest city in the United States with the worst social order, but the order is still much better than Shenzhen. Especially the Americans are very detached.
Because it is passing by, I have a quick glance. First, I visited the Central Park of the United States. In such a prosperous city center, there is such a large virgin forest-like Central Park, which is incomprehensible. The forest is so beautiful, the birds depend on people, the squirrels are cute, everything is so harmonious and cute. The Central Park is so big, we walked for a long time, only when we looked at the map we knew we had gone a small corner. In order to know how big it is, I rented a taxi and ran around quickly because the driver was afraid of black riots and spent more than 100 yuan.
Then visit the Natural Museum. In the remaining hour, we would like to run in a hurry and take a fancy look at the Nature Museum. It turns out that we were wrong when we entered. The exhibits inside are so exquisite and lifelike. In some places, they are returning to nature and primitive society. All kinds of rare and exquisite products from all over the world are collected and arranged so harmoniously and so richly in accordance with the laws of nature. No wonder people used to say that their doctoral thesis was written in a museum. It is really the best classroom for studying social development and natural development.
We passed by Philadelphia and saw a family of Chinese students (working) with an annual income of about 4 US dollars. It was so cold in winter that they were reluctant to turn on the heating. The little wife told me: Only in this way can we save 100 dollars a year. And domestic relatives asked them to send 1 US dollars as soon as they opened their mouths. Their country dare not return. The food and use are very simple. Chinese people eat frugally and leave it to future generations. Americans spend wildly and make friends. The Chinese will always be trapped in the circle of the Chinese and will never jump into the money nest. In the rich United States, they are still poor. The more Americans make friends, the better the opportunities and the more money they earn. 80% of success in life lies in opportunity.
We flew to Dallas on Monday, which is the headquarters of Texas Instruments (TI). TI’s headquarters occupies 6 acres. As soon as we arrived, we offered to visit the factory. The manager of the Asia-Pacific region told us that there is no factory here. The factories are scattered in more than 100 places around the world to package integrated circuits. Research and sales teams are mainly concentrated in the headquarters. We noticed that their president and chairman work in a relatively simple, shabby-looking bungalow, while the regional sales managers are a tall glass-walled building, very clean and quiet.
As we all know, the United States is very advanced in science and technology. We made a special trip to Las Vegas and visited the International Computer Show. Approximately 50 people participated, with fewer Chinese and fewer mainland Chinese. If the Chinese do not go out and take a look, they will not only fail to catch up with others, but they may also fall off the train of the times. We are already in the delicate period of entry, and we should maintain good market and technical information. The company will arrange comrades to go out and take a look.
TI is very enthusiastic about our visit and introduced us to many high-speed devices that we have never heard of before. The company's introduction is very organized, mainly using projection equipment, film, and logically edited technical descriptions. From the morning to the evening, I kept introducing them, which was very speculative and increased my understanding of TI.
We also saw groups of American children come here to visit the International Computer Show. They were filled with emotion: I don’t know how many talents inventing the atomic bomb and space shuttle of tomorrow are growing, and the United States will endure for a long time. For an hour, we ran to watch, and we didn't even finish a corner of the first floor of the five-story building. I can't finish it for a month.
Visiting this international exhibition, we had only one day, desperately running in the hall, and barely finished visiting one hall. Later, I learned that there are seven halls and it takes at least seven days. An eye-opener for the development of international computers. Find the feeling that my country’s computer industry will be sunset, and find the feeling that if we don’t work hard to develop technology, we will eventually lose all the market.
Only after visiting this exhibition did we realize what a technological crisis and a market crisis are. Three years ago, Wang An’s annual sales amounted to US$35 billion, and now it has declared bankruptcy protection. A group such as Mitsubishi, Japan, withdrew from computer production. This kind of intense crisis pushes the whole world forward. Huawei has been placed in a position of not advancing or retreating by history. The sea of science is boundless, and there is no shore to look back. If it misses development opportunities, it will be wiped out. The road Huawei has taken in the past few years is right, but not enough. We should go forward boldly and go forward.
Our last stop was to Silicon Valley. Santa Clara is a small place in California. There are 480 million people and there is no industry. The electronics industry and cutting-edge industries in the United States have established research institutions here. IBM’s headquarters is said to cover an area of 400 square kilometers, which is incredible. We rented a taxi and walked at least 6-7 kilometers in diameter. It's not clear how big it is. HP, NS, AMD, I.TEL---, all are here. Therefore, when you visit the United States, you only need to be in Silicon Valley to learn about electronic technology in the United States.
California's economy is independently calculated and ranks eighth in the world. We visited NS (National Semiconductor), which has more than 6000 researchers and no factory in Silicon Valley. After listening to their introduction of a series of new devices such as optical devices, I saw the rise of the world's third-generation switching network, and saw the emergence of new technologies that will change the world market.
We started late, others have been walking for a few years, and we have just started. We sell these devices with money, and the level will be brought to the forefront of the world as soon as possible. Of course, there is still a lot of software to do. We feel the deepest in Silicon Valley, as if every pulse is oscillating.
CP is a small company in the United States, but its management is very advanced. From this window, I saw the Americans’ perseverance and earnestness, and the methodical and well-organized management like a gentleman. All kinds of documents are very clear, accurate and well covered. It is a successful system project.
Americans get off work at four in the afternoon. They have added so many classes for us, and they are very few. I visited the silicon wafer manufacturing of DMOS, which was very advanced. The United States has begun to retain the core part of its industry for local production, and a large number of the rest have been transferred to branch companies around the world to reduce costs and enhance competitiveness. After I arrived in Silicon Valley, I felt even stronger.
I see that our scientific research methods are still very backward, the level of research management is still very low, and the efficiency is far behind the developed countries. Fortunately, the personal qualities of our employees are not worse than those of American companies. To catch up with the United States, the most important thing is to improve management.
Silicon Valley is the most expensive in the U.S. due to labor costs, land, and everything, so companies only keep research and sales organizations in Silicon Valley, and industries move to the United States or other parts of the world. We have some reports such as "Silicon Valley is declining." "Silicon Valley Sunset" is all wrong. Silicon Valley is still making a new take-off in the information industry, which is by no means a recession.
Therefore, our company decided to buy a house in the central area of Silicon Valley, set up a development center, put the results of scientific research and semi-finished products there to optimize the design, and then move it back to Shenzhen for production, and apply for the registration of a Huawei-owned Rambo technology there. Limited company. Rambo is a transliteration, which means the head of the goddess of the sea.
Via Los Angeles, we began to return to our motherland and watched a movie about developing the American West on the plane. Describes a rich British girl who is unwilling to rely on her parents' peaceful life. With a newspaper that gave each developer 160 acres of land for free in the western United States, he was ready to go to the United States. An appointment was made with an employee who was arrested by his father, but the employee refused. In the early morning of the next day, she drove away in a private car, passed through the execution ground, pulled the hired worker into the car and ran away. The young man had to follow her to Boston, USA. At that time, Boston was poorer than the rural areas of Shaanxi. It was in tatters, and the young lady credulously believed a liar in the town and sold the silver tableware she had brought, only to have no money.
They began to be in equal poverty in the United States. In order to save the cost of going to the west, the young man went to the boxing ring and the young lady went to wash clothes. After all the hardships, they finally sprouted love. The hardships it shows are more real and moving than all our films. When they were so hungry, they broke into an empty house and feasted desperately. He was regarded as a bad guy and shot and wounded the lady. The young lady is dying. The young man held the young lady and sent it to the hotel of the young lady's lover (the officer chased by the British). Because he was penniless and couldn't save Miss, he broke up in a hurry.
The young man walked while repairing the railway and finally reached the west. After the young lady recovered from her injury, she went to the west with her husband. They met each other occasionally, sorrow and joy. At that time, there was not so much land in the west. The local government had no choice but to plant small flags on each piece of land, and agreed that on a certain day, whoever ran there first, who planted his own flag first, would own the land. The young man bought a very strong horse for this. Before the start of the run, someone fouled and ran, and the referee could not call it back to run again, and ordered the musketeer to kill the foul.
As soon as the brigade ran up, the wind and smoke billowed. Some cars ran away or overturned. The young lady’s husband fell into the river and died. The young man finally ran to the land, and the young lady chased him, but Lima smashed the young man into a serious injury. The young lady went to the rescue and forgot to plant the flag. When the brigade caught up, she remembered to plant the flag. The young man didn't know the personnel at first, and when the flag was put up, he opened his eyes slightly. The movie is over, let you think about what they got. When the lady gets the land, all the relatives may not be there. Desperately reclaiming in the desert without love has created today's prosperous west.
The vast majority of the American people are hardworking and studious. We should learn from their indomitable and meticulous spirit of struggle. There have never been any gods or emperors. Our Chinese nation can only be rejuvenated if we are down-to-earth and face our weaknesses. The disillusionment of the dream of prosperity from generation to generation makes us more deeply aware of the profound meaning of learning from the United States in technology and from Japan in management.
