When companies minimize their costs, they can spend more on R & D and marketing. It's just very logical.
Taiwan must find its own way. We have been emphasizing too much the manufacturing business. We have to become more high-tech, more innovative, and provide more value. We can't always insist on the value of low-cost production. We have to invest more in R&D to get high-value business.
High tech is for a short time. But art is forever. People still admire a Picasso or a Van Gogh. But they don't admire the steam locomotive anymore.
I like to see people enjoy using my product. This is the mission of an engineer.
The market is so competitive. There are so many products that are similar. So we are forced to invest in innovative research in new products that are one or two years ahead of the market.
Taiwan has been so well developed economically. But we are underdeveloped culturally.
The next revolution, the next trend is to be an intelligence-intensive company. That has more value to society than a labor-intensive company.
