VM CAO Inspects Hunan Province

Vice Minister CAO Jianlin inspected Hunan Province from June 27 to July 1, 2007. He visited the Central South University, the Hunan University, and a number of hi-tech enterprises, where he listened to introduction and gave instructions on how to strengthen the innovation capability, expedite development of hi-tech parks, and build up the hi-tech industry and enterprises.


CAO also received updates about Hunan’s hi-tech industry. He gave full recognition to the province’s efforts in promoting S&T progress, especially in fostering the hi-tech industry. He encouraged the province to build its hi-tech sector into a powerful large scale industry, with a focus on well-established fields like mechanical engineering, C/C composites, hard cemented carbides, etc. Meanwhile, it was necessary to highlight Hunan’s characteristics by taking advantage of distinct science bases and parks, and to make them more relevant to each other. Attention should be given on improving the culture system while play to strength and learn from Jiangsu and Zhejiang Provinces. The S&T departments should put a premium on small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) development as well.
