Major S&T Accomplishments achieved in the 10th Five-year Period
A national showcase to display major S&T accomplishments achieved in the 10th Five-year period(2001-2005) was staged September 18-27, 2005 in Beijing. Under a theme slogan "new century, new S&T, and new accomplishments", the show offered a space floor of 7800m2 to house the displays in forms of posters, multimedia, and objects. The show presents a line of major S&T accomplishments achieved in the 10th five-year period. They have rendered a forceful support for and a great contribution to the national economic and social development.
The 10th Five-year plan is the first five-year planning effort made in the new century. Under a clearly defined guideline of "innovation and commercial applications", the plan requires a substantive readjustment of the general thinking line to guide the S&T development in the country, in an attempt to keep abreast with the new economic and S&T developments in the world. The plan made new strategic deployments for industrial technology upgrading, and for enhancing the sustainable S&T innovation capacity, guiding S&T activities to head for new progresses.
Noticeable achievements have been made in the course of establishing a national and regional innovation system, which brought up more S&T innovations. In the area of S&T system restructuring, research institutes have witnessed great changes in management and operation modalities. Universities have become a strong force in S&T innovations. China's S&T innovation infrastructures are developing soundly with an ever increasingly improved S&T service system.
China's climate for S&T development has been remarkably improved. In addition to securing a grand S&T personnel contingent, China has impressively increased its investment in R&D activities, from RMB 89.6 billion in 2000 to RMB 184.3 billion in 2004, with a lifted weight in GDP from 1% to 1.35%.
By taking full advantage of the global S&T resources, China's international cooperation in S&T has embarked on a new stage, harvested rich results in being part of international research and large science projects, including the Galileo Project, and the international human genome project. China plays an important role in diverse international affairs, including global environment, population, resources, and sustainable development, which safeguards the interests of developing countries and erects a good image in the international community.
China's comprehensive national strength has been remarkably enhanced since the 10th Five-year period. The greatly lifted proprietary innovation capacity and a line of important innovative findings achieved have advanced China's competitiveness in the world, from 30th place in 2000 to 24th in 2004. China's overall S&T strength foreruns the developing countries, with its capability in some major or key areas approaching or reaching an internationally advanced level. China's S&T development enters one of the best heydays in history.
