The 13th Five-Year Plan for Mianyang Science and Technology City, in Southwest China’s Sichuan province, stresses efforts to promote innovation-driven development and civil-military integration in the city.
The State Council issued the plan encouraging the identification of civilian frontier technologies for development and application to China’s national defense and military.
The circular asked Mianyang to promote sci-tech system reform and talent cultivation, to take the lead in innovative development and civil-military integration, and drive development of China’s western region.
An easier administrative environment and better services should also be improved to reinforce the city’s innovative abilities, the circular stated.
Sichuan provincial government should formulate a timetable and more detailed plan to ensure that all measures are put in place and targets reached.
The inter-ministerial team for the sci-tech city construction and related State Council departments should support the city to launch major pilot reforms, according to the circular.
The Ministry of Science and Technology and the Sichuan provincial government should be responsible for evaluating and setting targets for the city’s development, the circular said.
