Seven steps to Success in MIC 2025

China has targeted a leadership position in the key technologies and industries of the future, from artificial intelligence to biotech and robotics. Its “Made in China 2025” strategy hits the right notes: it aims at mastering design, software and production; and it targets a combination of high-tech sectors and infrastructure.

Seven key steps will determine whether the strategy succeeds or fails:

First: building the right pool of talent—scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, creatives. China has poured massive resources into education and training; it accounted for over one-fifth of all science and engineering bachelor’s degrees awarded globally in 2014, more than double the U.S. share, according to a National Science Board report released earlier this year. The number of students graduating in science and engineering in China has quadrupled between 2002 and 2014. China has become a close second to the U.S. in the overall number of science and engineering doctorates, and has surpassed the U.S. in natural sciences and engineering doctorates (including physics, mathematics and computer science). The quality matters more than the numbers, and the U.S. maintains a clear lead in scientific breakthroughs and their industrial applications. But the number of Chinese students admitted to U.S. colleges and universities has climbed steadily to about 351,000 for the past academic year, and many go back to work in China with U.S.-quality degrees. This first step is well on track.

Second: building know-how. China has doubled R&D investment between 2000 and 2016, to a bit over 2% of GDP, pulling ahead of the EU. But know-how also depends on foreign investment and international trade, which facilitate access to global knowledge and technology. Here China’s heavy-handed approach of forcing foreign companies into joint ventures with domestic players, with very weak protection for intellectual property (IP), is backfiring. Trade tensions with the U.S. could curb China’s trade, and make the U.S. and other foreign companies more reluctant to invest in China. Isolation hampers innovation.

Third: ensuring the right mix of competition and collaboration in the ideas marketplace. China’s poor IP protection undermines healthy R&D competition—though this might change as more Chinese companies develop original IP. Collaboration across companies is still limited, and mostly mandated or encouraged by the government. Today’s industrial innovations tend to cross traditional expertise boundaries, and require more open collaboration than in the past. Here China has a lot of work to do.

Fourth: Allowing failure and creative destruction. China’s 2025 strategy focuses on the constructive aspect, on building powerful and competitive industries. That’s very attractive. But innovation disrupts existing industries at a rapid pace. So far, China has carefully phased out some state-owned companies to make room for the nascent private sector. That’s been painful enough, displacing workers and causing ripples in the financial sector. Will China allow a similar and broader disruptive process to unfold spontaneously?

Fifth: Building stable legal and economic institutions. The innovation battle unfolds best in a context of clear and predictable rules and institutions. Not just IP protection, but the role of courts, labor legislation, environmental and healthcare regulations and more. That is very different from the current all-powerful rule of the Communist Party. Completing this step will require a profound restructuring of China’s institutional setup.

Sixth: Maintaining a sustainable macro environment. Economic and financial crises inflict severe and lasting damage on industry. The Bank for International Settlements has noted that financial bubbles and the ensuing recessions cause a misallocation of resources, drawing talent and capital away from their most productive uses; this contributed to the productivity growth slowdown in advanced economies after the 2009 recession—compounded by a collapse and slow recovery in investment. China’s macro environment dances on the knife-edge of sustainability. China’s policymakers have been pursuing the right strategy, a gradual bolstering of domestic consumption and private industry. But they need to reduce a burgeoning corporate debt stock and further shrink the state-owned companies’ sector while modernizing the still tightly state-managed financial sector. China’s shift to a more sustainable economic model is a difficult balancing act, on an unprecedented scale.

Seventh: Establishing the right partnership and division of responsibilities between the private and public sector. China has pulled off a phenomenal economic performance, expanding its economy at an average rate of close to 10% for nearly forty years. It has achieved this remarkable feat through a meritocratic and tightly disciplined economic management, running the country’s economy much like a top-ranked company is run. To get to the next stage, though, the private sector will need to play a much stronger part. Advanced economies like the U.S. and Europe will also need to rethink the way in which private and public sector collaborate, including on scientific research, education and training and social safety nets. For China though, this will be a much bigger challenge.

China has designed the right strategy to take the lead in the global industry race, but implementing this seven-step program to execute it will be its toughest challenge yet.

New China Tariff Cuts to Lower Cost

 China announced new tariff cuts on September 26, with a view to further lowering costs for manufacturers and consumers.

Together with the reductions announced earlier this year, China’s tariff cuts should lower import costs by RMB 60 billion (US$8.73) in 2018.

Although China’s high tariff rates have been a frequent point of attack for US President Donald Trump amid the trade war, these tariff cuts are not a concession stemming from trade negotiations.

Rather, they are a measure to blunt the impact of US tariffs on Chinese businesses.

Lowering costs for manufacturers in China

Compared to the last two rounds of significant tariff cuts, which mainly targeted consumer goods, this round lays greater emphasis on industrial products and materials often used for manufacturing.

The tariff relaxations will result in meaningful cost savings for businesses that frequently import products affected by the deepening US-China trade war.

In fact, in the first eight months of the year, China imported US$632 billion worth of machinery and electrical equipment. The new tariff cuts should therefore partially offset the high US tariff impositions.

China’s supply-side reforms

While the timing of these cuts can be put down to the trade war, they also fall into China’s wider supply-side reform policy. China aims to boost its domestic consumption, lower the costs of doing business in the country, and upgrade its production capabilities.

Last year – before the US-China trade dispute began in earnest – China substantially cut tariffs on a range of consumer goods.

Thus, slashing import tariffs are just the latest in a series of moves that China is making to strengthen its macroeconomic foundations. Other moves include: expanding export tax rebates, tax cuts for small and micro enterprises, tariff cuts for select countries, and regional FDI incentives.

Why the world concerned about MIC 2025?

    Made in China 2025: Beijing's manufacturing blueprint and why the world is concerned.

  • As the trade tensions between the US and China roll on, one particular Chinese policy is appearing in news reports more frequently.
  • Made in China 2025 is a 10-year industrial development plan, but businesses and governments around the world are concerned it will have a dramatic effect on global trade.

    Chinese state media has even accused the United States of trying to provoke a trade war in order to undermine the policy.

    Ambitious, long-term policy documents don't always attract this much attention, so let's have a look at why this one is different.

    What's the plan?
    Announced in October 2015, the Made in China 2025 plan is a roadmap for the future of the country's manufacturing sector. It intends to turn China into a manufacturing super power, and Beijing is keen to pour somewhere in the order of $US300 billion into that lofty goal. The plan looks to target emerging industries like robotics, the manufacturing of autonomous and electric cars, artificial intelligence, biotech and aviation.Those industries will be subsidised, handed low-interest loans, rent-free land and tax breaks in order to beat global competitors in the field. Neale O'Connor, an expert on Chinese technology and manufacturing innovation at Monash University's Malaysia Campus, said China hoped to turn itself into a high-end manufacturer with global trade links.
  • "There are bold plans not just to dominate the domestic market in China, but actually to be dominant in the world," he said.
    "The focus is to help China move from being dependent on international companies and providing low-cost labour to actually becoming an independent and technology-driven economy."

High-tech equipment to be focus of first China International Import Expo

High-end and intelligent equipment will take centre stage as organisers gear up for the Shanghai event

Exhibitors and buyers are showing great interest in the high-end and intelligent equipment due to be shown at the China International Import Expo in Shanghai in early November.

During a matchmaking meeting for exhibitors and buyers held in Shanghai recently, Zhong Xiaomin, deputy director of the China International Import Expo Bureau, said that the high-end and intelligent equipment exhibition area has become the focus of attention.

China National Machine Tool Corp is responsible for soliciting exhibitors for the high-end and intelligent equipment show area.

Liang Feng, the corporation’s president, said there would be more than 39,450 square yards of exhibition space for such equipment, accommodating more than 160 overseas companies.

Eight of the world’s top 10 machine tool companies, as well as all the world’s top five cutter manufacturers, will take part in the first CIIE.

At least 10 companies will debut their latest products or technologies at the CIIE, Liang said.

Wang Qiang, chairman of Donghao Lansheng, said this year’s high-end and intelligent equipment area will focus on four major sectors: aerospace engineering, integrated circuits, industrial automation and robotics.

“The Chinese robotics market was so heated last year that we had to use part of our production capability in Japan for the Chinese market."

Liuxiaobing

 

As the equipment may be expensive, with the cost of some surpassing 10 million yuan (£1.14 million), it is crucial to conduct a matchmaking meeting in advance to realise transactions during the CIIE, Wang said.

Eighty-one registered exhibitors and 269 buyers attended the recent meeting. The Japanese manufacturing company Nachi-Fujikoshi Corp, which was the first to sign up for this year’s CIIE, will showcase its most advanced small and medium-sized robots during the show, said Liu Xiaobing, director of the robotics business department at Nachi Shanghai.

“The Chinese robotics market was so heated last year that we had to use part of our production capability in Japan for the Chinese market. As the market is further consolidating, we will make the products more efficient and tailor-made for Chinese clients’ demand.”

Waldrich Coburg from Germany will showcase the largest piece of exhibition at this year’s CIIE. Its 200-ton planer type milling machine, with a price tag of 2.6 million euros (£2.34 million), can process all kinds of sophisticated parts used in motor vehicles and machines.

Zhong Mei Zhou Ji Investment (Hong Kong), the distributor of Leonardo helicopters made in Italy, will showcase three models of helicopters at the CIIE.
