"Made in China 2025" will help China strengthen manufacturing innovation, promote industrial transformation and upgrading, and become a "high-tech paradise" - Forbes magazine, Spain's Forbes magazine, Spain's El Mundo newspaper and other overseas media recently commented on the action plan for the first decade of China's manufacturing power strategy.
Manufacturing is the main body of the national economy, the main battlefield of scientific and technological innovation, the foundation of the country, the instrument of the country's prosperity and the foundation of the country's strength. 2015's "Made in China 2025" continues to attract the general attention of overseas manufacturing experts and public opinion. Experts believe that "Made in China 2025" has pointed out the road and direction for the development and industrial upgrading of China's manufacturing industry.
Innovation for Industrial Upgrading
At present, China is in a critical period of economic restructuring, transformation and upgrading, and "Made in China 2025" is an important initiative to help China's economic transformation and move towards an innovative society. "Made in China 2025" points out that structural adjustment should be a key part of building a strong manufacturing country, vigorously developing advanced manufacturing industries and upgrading traditional industries.
Forbes magazine recently published an article on its website, saying that "Made in China 2025" shows that China is promoting innovation and accelerating the pace of industrial upgrading. China needs to maintain its competitive advantage in global development through innovation and be invincible.
Cai Yuan, a researcher at Australia's Roy Institute of International Studies, said China's economy is now in a phase of transition, with the advantages of traditional manufacturing gradually decreasing, the cost of production materials such as water, electricity and land rising, and labor costs escalating, prompting the need to upgrade China's manufacturing industry.
In recent years, China's traditional industries and the Internet integration development significantly speed up, prompting the level of intelligent manufacturing continue to improve, a number of core technology and equipment research and development applications to make new breakthroughs, for the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries to provide a strong impetus.
Cai Yuan said, China has a number of industries, including rail transportation equipment, communications, power equipment, etc. already has a strong international competitiveness. In the communications industry, for example, Chinese enterprises represented by Huawei and ZTE have strong market competitiveness and have entered the markets of developed countries.
Xiong Yu, tenured chair professor at the Newcastle Business School of Northumbria University in the UK, said that China has introduced or borrowed some technologies or innovations from other countries, which, after being nurtured by the Chinese market, have in turn spawned innovation and change, which in turn has led to a worldwide influence.
Targeting emerging industries
Under the wave of information technology, the development of industrialization is facing many challenges. The "Made in China 2025" focuses on the strategic goal of achieving a strong manufacturing country, specifying nine strategic tasks and priorities, promoting the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries while targeting the direction of the new round of global industrial development, and promoting the close integration of traditional industries with new industries such as 3D printing, robotics and artificial intelligence.
The Financial Times said in an article that Chinese companies are beginning to dominate the lithium-ion battery industry, which has been led by South Korean and Japanese manufacturers for the past 30 years. Lithium-ion battery production will be an important technology for at least the next 10 years as environmental concepts take hold and automakers increase their investment in electric vehicles.
In an exclusive interview with Xinhua, Simon Moores, general manager of research firm Benchmark Mining Intelligence, said that China's lithium-ion battery industry is taking the world lead in the global electric vehicle market, which is growing rapidly from small electric bicycles to large pure electric vehicles.
According to the benchmark mining intelligence, China will account for 62% of the global lithium-ion battery production capacity in 2020, while the United States and South Korea will account for 22% and 13% respectively.
In addition, as one of the key development areas of "Made in China 2025", the robotics industry has become one of the new highlights at the time of the transformation of the old and new dynamics. Data from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology show that China's industrial robot production reached 72,400 units in 2016, up 34.3% year-on-year. More than 40 robotics industrial parks have been built and are under construction, and the number of robotics companies exceeds 800. Xiong Yu said China has both huge domestic demand and technological strength, and promoting manufacturing innovation that combines artificial intelligence, big data and the Internet is the general direction of China's manufacturing development.
State promotes long-term development
The "Made in China 2025" addresses the global development trend of traditional and emerging industries, combines the current situation of different industrial development, and formulates a reasonable plan to gradually upgrade the manufacturing industry, so that China's position in the global value chain of various industries can be upgraded comprehensively.
