Chinese state program “Made in China 2025” was created to secure a leading position in the global high-tech manufacturing market. The primary goal of the program is to increase China’s independence without being tied by foreign technologies and to introduce Chinese high-tech manufacturers in the global market.
China is ready to invest in developing industries such as electric cars and other new energy vehicles; next-generation information technology (IT) and telecommunications; advanced robotics and artificial intelligence; agricultural technology; aerospace engineering; new synthetic materials; advanced electrical equipment; emerging bio-medicine; high-end rail infrastructure; and high-tech maritime engineering.
