China’s leading status in AI, quantum sectors is coupled with urgency of self-reliance


Top officials from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) said the country will promote new emerging industry clusters, including the layout of industry chains in cutting-edge sectors such as artificial intelligence (AI) and quantum communication, to ensure the resilience of the industry and supply chains of the world’s second-largest economy.

Such an approach will be coupled with an upgrading in more traditional sectors including engineering equipment, nonferrous metals, construction materials and petrochemicals to consolidate China’s lead among the world’s industrial powers, along with efforts to scale up China’s advantage in emerging sectors including bullet trains, electric equipment, new energy and telecommunications, Tian told a State Council Information Office press conference on Monday.

China enjoys leading status in AI and quantum communication technologies, Chinese analysts and industry insiders said, but there is urgency to beef up technology self-reliance to boost supply chain security, given the looming risk of a technology sector decoupling from the US.
