"Given my experience in the US and my experience in China, the best dialogues between China and US are always almost entrepreneur to entrepreneur,” said Jerry Yang, founder of Yahoo and independent non-executive Director of Lenovo, during the Second World Internet Conference on Thursday.
"When two entrepreneurs get together, languages barriers go away, and nationality barriers also go away… We should encourage more startups, whether they are US companies or Chinese companies, to talk to each other, have more dialogues and maybe have more access to each other”, he said.
"When companies get bigger, things become more complicated. If we are entrepreneurs and startups, many things could be done."
The Second World Internet Conference, the most high-profile Internet related event in China, is taking place in the picturesque water town of Wuzhen, Zhejiang province, Dec 16 to 18.
