The “CCTV China Economic Person of the Year Award” was created by Half-Hour Economic Update in 2000 and today, the “China Economic Person of the Year” has become one of the most influential awards in the Chinese economic world.

In his award commentary, Wang Jianlin pointed out that innovation is a core element of entrepreneurship and only through innovation can enterprises and society improve. Innovation is striving to do what others have not done such that no one other than the innovator can do it. With regard to what others already have, strive to revamp the business model such that one is able to do better than what others have done. In this way, one is able to achieve a different success and gain an upper hand.
