R&D is the backbone of innovation. It supports the development of new scientific methods, technologies, and commercial goods – all of which can boost economic productivity and raise living standards. After decades of export-led growth, China is increasingly turning to innovation as a driver for its economy.
China is seeking to improve educational quality and increase access across the country. A well-educated Chinese workforce can bolster China’s technological and scientific development and thus strengthen the country’s position in an increasingly innovation-based global economy.
