China looks to leverage strength of domestic market in its 12th Five Year Plan, says new report from Digitimes Research
Press release, DIGITIMES, Taipei [Wednesday 9 February 2011]

Taipei, Taiwan, February 9, 2011 - China will soon formally kick off its 12th Five Year Plan (2011-2015), and while in the past China placed heavy emphasis on becoming a rich and strong nation, the emphasis has now shifted to how the government can help its people become rich as well, according to a new DIGITIMES Special Report titled "Overview of China's 12th Five Year Plan."

Five year plans are essentially China's economic development roadmap and are intended to set goals and chart a course for the long-term development of the nation's economy. However, the government will downplay the role of GDP growth targets in the 12th Five Year Plan, and sets its sights mainly on adjustments to the country's economic structure, including changes in the structure of supply, demand and production, in order to increase the pace of income growth for residents and usher China into a more comfortably well off society, with per capita GDP set to exceed US$5,000.

To achieve this goal, China has identified seven key strategic industries that together will be allocated a budget of CNY10 trillion (US$1.52 trillion) over the next five years for investment. The DIGITIMES Special Report explains how China aims to have local enterprises leverage the enormous domestic market to increase their global strength and competitiveness in these key emerging industries – namely Energy Savings and Environmental Protection, Next-generation IT, Biotechnology, High-end Assembly and Manufacturing (e.g. aerospace), New Energy Sources, New Materials, and Alternative Energy powered Automobiles.

The report also highlights how China is no longer satisfied with its past role of being a technological follower. It is banking on its huge domestic market to allow it to have a say in the making of standards and business models for a number of these emerging sectors during the early stages of development. In the future, China will also look to leapfrog global technology development and look to gain control of standards and technologies in the areas of IT and communications, as well as new energy applications.

Seven major strategic industries in China’s 12th Five Year Plan involve a total of 35 projects for various sub-industries
