[Columns]Up-and-coming Chinese scientist at Daikin Air Conditioning Laboratory

He has gentle eyes. He always has a smile on his face. This must be a really cheerful person. The first impression I got from Dr. Piao Chun-cheng, a 39-year-old researcher at Daikin Air Conditioning Research and Development Laboratory, Ltd., was that he was cheerful, talented and eloquent. Naturally, we had a lively conversation. 'I come from Changchun, China. I am a Chinese of ethnic Korean origin. My grand father migrated from Korea to China.'
Needless to say, Daikin Industries Ltd. boasts the world-class air conditioning technology. It has a dominant share in the domestic market in commercial- and industrial-use air conditioners.
