Bei­jing to be­come science, tech in­no­va­tion hub

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The State Coun­cil, China's cabi­net, has is­sued a plan on trans­form­ing Bei­jing into a na­tional sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion hub.

Ac­cord­ing to the doc­u­ment, China aims to make the hub a world leader in in­no­va­tion, a growth pole for the econ­omy, and a pool for tal­ent.

The in­no­va­tion hub is ex­pected to be­come a pow­er­ful en­gine to boost the coun­try's in­no­va­tion drive by 2030, the plan said.

The doc­u­ment stresses the key role of north Bei­jing's hitech zone Zhong­guan­cun and neigh­bor­ing re­gions of Tian­jin mu­nic­i­pal­ity and He­bei Prov­ince in sup­port­ing the tech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tion hub drive.

It also called for en­hanced fun­da­men­tal re­search in cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy, im­proved per­son­nel train­ing and gov­ern­ment ser­vices as well as a bet­ter pol­icy en­vi­ron­ment for in­no­va­tion.

Tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion in piv­otal sec­tors should be strength­ened and should ben­e­fit more peo­ple, and the cap­i­tal city should be­come more open to in­ter­na­tional re­sources, it added.
