TOKYO -- Innovation offers businesses the only path for survival in the age of connected devices and artificial intelligence, Wang Dongsheng, chairman of Chinese display maker BOE Technology Group, said on Tuesday.

"BOE ensures at least 7% of our revenue goes to research and development every year, and in some years it could reach more than 10%," Wang told the Nikkei Global Management Forum in Tokyo. "Some said we were 'crazy,' but in my view it is 'crazy' not to invest in R&D and not to insist on technology innovation. ... We have to rely on innovation."
