Japan doesn't need to prove herself anymore.
I would suggest you not to list Japan with the US, UK, and France. What Japan has contributed to the world from few thousand years ago until present?
Japan established herself as an icon of manufacturing. It is unlikely that experts on issues of modern manufacturing will try to discuss the subject without making any referrence to Japan. Also, to great many people throughout the world, "Made in Japan" often means precision, high quality, high durability, and, therefore, high reliability with extra value to them. That seems to be the case not only in developing countires but also in the advanced industrial countries.
How about India? India has been rapidly becoming an icon of information technology and software development with skills and production volume that no other countries can really provide to the world. So is Brazil in agriculture. Not to mention soccer and dance music in entertainment with worldwide recognition.
France, Great Britain, Japan, the U.S. have their own distinctive areas of expertise that could be identified as their national competitive advantage. They all represent the highest quality and value in the respective fields of their relative strength, for which they are highly regarded and respected worldwide. Others are willing to learn from them because of that.
What highest quality or value does China represent? If there isn't any at present, what would that be in the future? It takes a long time before you win such a recognition around the world.
