Chinese Computer Giant Showcases Capitalist Credentials – Terril Yue Jones

From the Los Angeles Times (link), with Q&A transcript:

Yang Yuanqing heads the world’s third-largest maker of personal computers. But few in the United States have ever heard of him – or his company, for that matter.

Lenovo Group aims to change that. Since the Chinese company bought IBM Corp.’s PC business last year for $1.25 billion, the company has moved quickly to establish itself as a global brand.

To that end, Lenovo signed on as the official computer sponsor of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, and the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
