BEIJING — Vice-Premier Ma Kai urged more innovation in the manufacturing sector and integration of information and manufacturing on July 15.

He made the remarks at a closing ceremony of a seminar on “Made-in-China 2025” in Beijing.

“Made-in-China 2025” needs popular participation, Ma said.

Enterprises should take the major responsibilities and spearhead in boosting market, innovation, cooperation and reforms, he said.

The government should deepen reforms, map supportive policies and build favorable environment for the manufacturing sector, Ma said.

In order to improve China’s manufacturing level, the State Council, or the cabinet, unveiled the “Made in China 2025” plan in May.

“Made-in-China 2025” lays out strategies for switching from low-end manufacturing to more value-added production, with domestic manufacturers expected to make technological breakthroughs in a number of emerging industries from numerical control tools and robotics to aerospace equipment and new energy vehicles.
