Relying on China’s own efforts to develop key technologies
Self-reliance has been a foundation for the Chinese nation to stand tall in the family of nations, and innovation by relying on its own initiative is a must for China to scale the heights of science and technology in the world. A country with a large economy is not necessarily a strong country. China is a large country, so it must have its own scientific and technological innovations and should not become a technological vassal of other countries.
The orientation for scientific and technological development in China is innovation, innovation and yet more innovation. China needs to work hard to make basic theoretical breakthroughs in traditional fields; improve science infrastructure; ensure sustained progress in research on fundamental, systemic and frontier technologies and in technological R&D; and increase supply to projects of technological advances based on independent innovation.
It needs to actively integrate and make good use of global resources for innovation.To meet its present and development demand China should participate in the development and use of selected, major international scientific facilities and scientific research bases or centers. China needs to seize strategic opportunities for developing science and technology in key areas, focus on priority areas of strategic importance that are vital to its overall and long-term development. The country also needs to efficiently and rationally allocate resources, deepen collaborative and open innovation, build an effective and strong supply system for key standard technologies, strive to make major breakthroughs in key technologies and keep them firmly in its hands.
