ASEAN can replicate China's successful solar industry revolution

It requires careful national planning and listening to business

| China

China is leading the world in clean-energy production -- especially wind and solar. As of early 2019, China owned six of the world's 10 largest solar module manufacturing companies. In 2018, it installed half of all new global solar power capacity, according to the International Energy Agency.

And the year before, it was the first country to pass 100 gigawatts of installed solar power capacity, which is equivalent to the electricity produced from about 75 nuclear power plants.
