"Made in China 2025" plan unveiled
China's State Council has unveiled a national plan, dubbed "Made in China 2025," focusing on promoting manufacturing, a notice said on May 19, 2015.
The plan was authorized by Premier Li Keqiang, according to the notice.
"Made in China 2025" is the first 10-year action plan designed to transform China from a manufacturing giant into a world manufacturing power.
The 10-year plan will be followed by another two plans in order to transform China into a leading manufacturing power by the year 2049, which will be the 100th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.
Nine tasks have been identified as priorities: improving manufacturing innovation, integrating information technology and industry, strengthening the industrial base, fostering Chinese brands, enforcing green manufacturing, promoting breakthroughs in 10 key sectors, advancing restructuring of the manufacturing sector, promoting service-oriented manufacturing and manufacturing-related service industries, and internationalizing manufacturing.
The 10 key sectors are new information technology, numerical control tools and robotics, aerospace equipment, ocean engineering equipment and high-tech ships, railway equipment, energy saving and new energy vehicles, power equipment, new materials, biological medicine and medical devices, and agricultural machinery.
To fulfill the tasks, "Made in China 2025" will focus on five major projects, including establishing a manufacturing innovation center, said the notice.
To shore up the plan, China will introduce a slew of policies to deepen institutional reforms and strengthen financial support.
The implementation of the "Made in China 2025" plan will be market-oriented, though guided by the government, according to the notice. (Xinhua)
中国制造2025 (zhongguo zhizao 2025): Made in China 2025
To accelerate the transformation of China from a big manufacturing power to a strong manufacturing power, Premier Li Keqiang advanced the "Made in China 2025" concept in his Government Work Report to the top legislature this year. There are three stages to the transformation that will take about three decades all together. "Made in China 2025" is the guideline for the first decade. It will lay a solid foundation for the next two stages.
It focuses on an innovation drive, intellectual property and green development. The authorities will also provide preferential policies to promote the restructuring of the traditional manufacturing industry, and support enterprises' mergers and reorganization, as well as market competition. Industrialization and informatization will be deeply integrated to make breakthroughs in some key fields.
Minister of Industry and Information Technology Miao Wei said the "Made in China 2025" strategy is of great significance to the development of China's manufacturing industry. In 2010 China became the biggest manufacturing power in the world, but not a strong manufacturing power as China lacks enterprises and products that have international competitiveness. It is expected that the "Made in China 2025" plan will lift the country into the second tier of the global manufacturing industry by then. (China Daily)
