Rory Cellan-Jones pays a visit to two of China's technology champions, Lenovo and Tencent.

Lenovo recently overtook Hewlett Packard of the USA to become the world's biggest maker of personal computers. Yao Yingjia, head of design at Lenovo tells Rory Cellan-Jones how the company also plans to win over consumers' hearts and minds.

We hear how Tencent operates its social media services like Weibo under conditions of censorship. And Greg Sutch of Intra-link says that western companies should see the rise of China's technology giants as an opportunity, not a threat.
