In China the model has achieved remarkable success and it has achieved a growth rate of almost 10% for the past 30 years.

Thus the prices of polysilicon soared and hit tenfold price in 2008. But Chinese government responded quickly by developing a domestic polysilicon suppliers (Dean, Browne and Oster, 2010, p. 1). Huge amounts of money were invested by banks and stationed enterprises. The local governments expedited
