I read on an interview to a scientist on another discipline (bio science) that
China is starting to offer to leading scientists in their fields to bring them
over and put in their hands a fully equipped lab (including staff of +50) to
speed up their R&D.
So depending on urgency, I do not think there is a need for cultural change.

It seems to me like a shift on world economics in 21st century will produce a
wave of scientist to move to China, very much in the same way it happened in
US in 20th century.

Maybe that personal forward looking statement is sci-fi, we'll see.
