He sug­gested giv­ing more sup­port to key fields and striv­ing for a lead­ing po­si­tion in the world­wide com­pe­ti­tion in de­fense sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy. Xi also stressed that the mil­i­tary needs to be open­minded and share their re­search and de­vel­op­ment re­sources with oth­ers, tap into the po­ten­tial of global so­ci­ety in sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion and cre­ate a highly com­pet­i­tive at­mos­phere for in­no­va­tion in de­fense sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy.
