Improving the social environment of sci-tech innovation is the key point to stimulate innovation and creativity and the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) has established an important platform to create sound social environments for innovation and promote the integration of science, technology and economy.

The forum is expected to become a service brand of “conference, exhibition and contest + technology trade” to build the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) a talent highland. CAST is willing to deepen strategic cooperation with all sides to make Guangzhou international technology trade service centre better serve sci-tech professionals to make innovation and start businesses and the future development of the GBA better integrated into new development patterns.

We should promote organisational innovation to build a platform to deliver accurate and market-oriented services to transform advanced technological achievements into real productivity. This will better fulfil CAST’s mission of targeting the global sci-tech frontiers, serving the main economic battlefields, meeting the significant needs of the country and benefiting people’s lives and health.

– Zhang Yuzhuo, Chief Executive Secretary, CAST

China has witnessed the certificate awarding ceremony of the National Offshore Entrepreneurship Bases of Overseas Professionals, the release of the policy guidelines for the industrialisation of sci-tech achievements in Guangzhou and the initiative of the alliance of investment and financing.

The participating guests were then invited to visit the exhibitions of innovation and entrepreneurship achievements. 20 exhibitions were set up to showcase about 5,000 programs, including B&R initiatives, academic achievements and innovative social environments establishment. 20 special activities such as summits, auctions, technology transfer and program roadshows were also included.

As the largest non-governmental organisation of scientific and technological professionals in China, CAST serves to improve the country’s science and technology community. Through its 210 national member societies and local branches all over the country, CAST maintains close ties with millions of Chinese scientists, engineers and other professionals working in the fields of science and technology.

CAST has made significant contributions to the prosperity and development of science and technology, to the popularisation of science and technology among the public, to the emerging of large numbers of professional talents, and to the overall economic and social development in China.

CAST maintains cooperative relations with scientific and technological organisations of many countries and, as the representative of the Chinese science and technology community, is the official national member of ICSU, WFEO and many other international scientific and technological organisations.

CAST aims to carry out academic exchanges, activate academic thinking, promote the development of all scientific disciplines, and stimulate independent innovation. CAST also has a purpose to organise scientific and technological professionals to contribute to the establishment of a technological innovation system that takes enterprises as the main body and can significantly enhance the enterprises’ innovation ability.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, another recent report titled “China Tech Decoupled” examined how China is building up a self-reliant domestic IT infrastructure ecosystem with detailed analysis. How China’s tech sector evolves and potentially decouples from the global tech system is one of the most important factors shaping the future. The report sheds light on how China’s effort to build up key domestic substitute IT infrastructure is going and how it will impact the world’s tech landscape.

China is likely to make reasonable progress in domestic replacement in the next decade in markets such as Internet-of-Things (IoT) O.S., cyber security, cloud computing, computing devices, and servers. These markets do not have as high technological barriers or long R&D cycles as chip manufacturing. As a greater share of these markets is captured by domestic companies, foreign companies will gradually lose market share and influence over the Chinese market.
