Excerpt from China Takes Further Steps To Boost Strategic Emerging Industries Lingna Yan -

As reported in the January 2011 Issue of the Trade & Manufacturing Alert, in October 2010, China unveiled its determination to develop seven strategic emerging industries in the State Council’s Decision to Accelerate the Development of Strategic Emerging Industries. The seven “strategic emerging industries” are (1) energy-saving and environment protection, (2) new-generation information technology, (3) biology, (4) high-end equipment manufacturing, (5) new energy, (6) new materials, and (7) new-energy cars. Recently, China made an important step to further the 2010 Decision. The State Council approved the 12th Five- Year National Development Plan of Strategic Emerging Industries (the “12th Five-Year National Plan”) at a standing meeting held on May 30, which is a detailed national plan designed to implement the supporting policies for the development of the seven industries over the 12th Five-Year period, i.e., 2011 to 2015.
