According to Paddy Cosgrave, CEO of the Web Summit conference, China is poised to surpass Western nations as the dominant force in technology over the next decade.


In a recent interview, Cosgrave stated his belief that China will eclipse the West as the primary hub of tech innovation going forward. The West has held this premier status for the last 50 years.


He argues that China’s vast resources, research strength, and entrepreneurial drive have positioned it to lead cutting-edge advancements. With the centre of tech innovation shifting eastwards, Cosgrave sees China dictating the future landscape.


Cosgrave’s bold prediction underscores China’s growing influence in steering where technology progresses. While America and Europe wonder how to respond to this seismic shift, China appears focused on pushing the boundaries further.


The Web Summit CEO’s outlook reflects a consensus that China holds the inside track to direct the coming waves of transformative technology. How this power transfer shakes out could dictate everything from global competition to economic might.
