Abstract

China is looking forward to implement a 15 year 'Medium-to-Long-Term Plan (MLP) for the Development of Science and Technology' that will help in improving scientific innovation of the country. The plan will help to solve political and economic problems such as finding the proper balance between indigenous efforts and engagement with the global community. The MLP builds on important policy initiatives including the 1995 commitment to strengthen the nation through science, technology, and education, and the notion of empowering the nation through talent. It focuses on the expansion of basic research, that includes the development of new disciplines and interdisciplinary areas, science frontiers, and fundamental research in support of major national strategies. The MLP will also provide an insight into the proper balance between indigenous efforts at research and innovation on the one hand and effective involvement with global technology flows and development on the other.
