China will en­cour­age crowd in­no­va­tion, crowd fund­ing, crowd out­sourc­ing and other in­no­va­tive forms to fur­ther sup­port the “Made in China 2025” ini­tia­tive, es­pe­cially in its ma­ture and fast­grow­ing sec­tors, said the coun­try’s top of­fi­cial for in­dus­trial busi­nesses.

Miao Wei, min­is­ter of in­dus­try and in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, said these plat­forms will change pro­duc­tion and man­age­ment. They will be able to at­tract both small and mi­cro busi­nesses, as well as big com­pa­nies.

“It al­lows em­ploy­ees within the com­pany to get re­wards in ad­di­tion to their salary by shar­ing their cre­ative ideas on­line. It will also of­fer op­por­tu­ni­ties to man­u­fac­tur­ers out­side the com­pany to take part in in­no­va­tion and share the ben­e­fits,” he said.

The “Made in China 2025” ini­tia­tive is a 10-year na­tional plan de­signed to trans­form China from a man­u­fac­tur­ing gi­ant into a global high-tech man­u­fac­tur­ing power.

Ro­bots and high-end nu­mer­i­cally con­trolled ma­chine tools are among the MiaoWei, 10 key fields of the ini­tia­tive.

With more cap­i­tal and tech­nol­ogy sup­port­ing mod­els, the min­is­ter said, a large group of mi­cro busi­nesses will bein­cu­bated, and­co­op­er­a­tion among re­search in­sti­tu­tions through in­ter­net tech­nolo­gies will up­grade their in­no­va­tions in a more ef­fi­cient man­ner, in par­tic­u­lar in in­dus­tries such as e-com­merce, telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion and other types of ser­vice busi­nesses.

Ea­ger to up­grade the coun­try’s man­u­fac­tur­ing abil­ity, the Min­istry of In­dus­try and In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy launched 46 in­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing pi­lot projects in 2015 and started 63 projects, in in­dus­tries such as bul­let trains, 3D print­ing, con­struc­tion ma­chiner­ies and elec­tric ve­hi­cles this year.

The­cen­tral­go­v­ern­men­twill al­lo­cate 5.2 bil­lion yuan ($780 mil­lion) to pro­mote 133 key projects in 25 prov­inces and au­ton­o­mous re­gions re­gard­ing in­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing this year, which is nearly 1.5 times the cap­i­tal in­vested in the projects in 2015.

“China is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a new type of in­dus­tri­al­iza­tion, IT ap­pli­ca­tion, ur­ban­iza­tion and agri­cul­tural mod­ern­iza­tion which can gen­er­ate strong do­mes­tic de­mand,” saidMiao.

Shenyang-based Si­a­sun Ro­bot and Au­to­ma­tion Co, the coun­try’s big­gest ro­bot maker by mar­ket value, has set goals to con­tinue im­prov­ing its in­no­va­tive sys­tem to com­pete with those es­tab­lished for­eign ri­vals in­clud­ing Switzer­land’s ABB Group or Fanuc Ltd of Ja­pan over the next decade.

Qu Daokui, pres­i­dent of Si­a­sun, said the com­pany would make more ef­forts to train­work­ers to man­u­fac­ture and op­er­ate ro­bots, as the na­tional man­u­fac­tur­ing ini­tia­tive “Made in China 2025” gains mo­men­tum.
