Chinese calligraphies are the best and most versatile way to communicate in Chinese, but they are in danger of being replaced by digital communication, according to a top Chinese academic.
“Calligraphy will not die, it’s already being replaced,” said Wu Yi, a professor of calligraphymetry at the National Taiwan University.
The trend towards calligraphic technology has taken off in China in recent years, as Chinese businesses, universities and governments seek to increase the efficiency of their digital systems.
China has been working hard to increase its use of the internet and digital communication to meet the countrys challenges, and the rise of Chinese internet companies such as Alibaba, WeChat and Tencent have helped to spur growth in the sector.
Wu said he was convinced calligraphys would survive and thrive in the US because Chinese businesses are using Chinese-made products to communicate and conduct business.
While the Chinese callographic industry has seen huge growth in recent decades, the trend is now facing the possibility of being displaced. “
The Chinese market has never seen such a big market for calligraphics, but it will only grow because there are a lot of Chinese products on the market.”

“There is no reason for the Chinese to abandon the use of calligraphic technology,” Wu said, arguing that Chinese companies should work with the US government to help ensure their digital devices are not hacked.
Wu’s comments come as the US has been caught up in an escalating cyber-security crisis, with US lawmakers and experts warning the country will face economic fallout from an attack that has already cost the US economy billions of dollars.
Wu was among a group of international academics who attended a recent cybersecurity summit in Washington, DC.
The summit was held to discuss a cyber-attack that took place last month that was blamed on China.
Wu attended the cybersecurity summit with two US senators, a former US attorney general and several leading cybersecurity experts.
Wu warned that the US faces a long-term cyber-threat that will only get worse as the cyber-infrastructure in China grows.
“I think there is a huge risk of the US becoming a China in which there is no cyber-safety,” Wu told reporters.
Wu also said that US-based companies, including companies like Apple and Microsoft, are facing “political pressure” to use Chinese-manufactured products and that they should “think twice” about using Chinese products in the future.
Wu called on the US to make the case to China to be a good partner and to ensure that their companies are not taken advantage of.
“It’s the US that is being taken advantage by Chinese companies,” Wu added.
“That is the reason why China is trying to change the US policy.”
The US is the largest market for Chinese products and has been pushing to open up Chinese companies to more foreign investment.
In August, the US Congress approved legislation that would make it easier for companies to invest in China if they were already approved for US investments.
Wu and other Chinese experts believe the bill will encourage companies to build up a strong relationship with the government and US officials.
But Wu’s sentiments are shared by many in the Chinese business community, who say China has taken a dim view of the proposed legislation.
“They [the Chinese] don’t like to talk about politics,” Wu was quoted as saying.
According to Wu, the new cybersecurity bill is not aimed at China, but rather at the US.
“If the US wants to help China, the best thing to do is to have the US as an investor in Chinese technology,” he said.
Wu said China’s government is taking steps to protect its own industries.
“But it’s also important to keep in mind that China has many opportunities in the world and there is always a need for Chinese companies in those opportunities.”
