AUSTIN, Texas — With NI Week becoming an increasingly distant memory, we decide to reminisce on our National Instrument executive series. First man out was Chandran Nair, a man who more than earned a full written interview during the event itself, eloquently answering our questions on NI's Asia business, the Chinese Semiconductor industry and his own experiences working with different cultures.

However, the video of the interview was never published, until now. In a bid to flesh out exactly how verbatim the original written article was, we've decided to put Mr. Nair in all his glory on Youtube, the result of which can be seen below.

In a brief series of questions, Nair talks IoT, the China 2025 plan, how he and NI sees China and the U.S. as natural business partners, as well as how emerging markets can adopt new technology quicker.
