Department of Electronics of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology: Integrated Circuit Industry Ushers in Broad Development Space
On September 21st, Ren Aiguang, deputy director of the Electronic Information Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, stated at the IC Industry Summit Forum of the 2019 World Manufacturing Conference that the strategic, leading, and basic nature of the IC industry has become more prominent, especially with 5G and artificial intelligence. With the development of new technologies and empowering manufacturing, the integrated circuit industry has ushered in a broad space for development.
Ren Aiguang said that the next step in the development of the integrated circuit industry needs to do the "four persistence". First, we must persist in improving the innovation capability of the integrated circuit industry and promote the high-quality development of the industry. Continue to improve the upstream and downstream collaborative innovation capabilities of the industrial chain, and actively build a complete industrial system from basic research, supply technology, equipment and materials to complete machine application. Further intensify opening up, deepen the level of international cooperation, seek innovative breakthroughs with other countries in the world, share development results, and continue to promote the high-quality development of the integrated circuit industry.
Secondly, we must persist in stimulating market vitality and promote the development of industrial integration. Focus on traditional markets with a large volume and a wide range, grasp emerging markets such as cloud computing, big data, and the Internet of Things, and accelerate the formation of an integrated circuit industry innovation system with enterprises as the main body, market-oriented, and in-depth integration of production, education, research and application, and further stimulate market vitality. Build and form a new pattern of industrial integration and development that is higher quality, more efficient, fairer, and more sustainable.
Third, we must persist in improving the construction of the industrial chain and comprehensively enhance the comprehensive competitiveness of the industry. Further promote the optimization and improvement of the overall level of the integrated circuit industry, drive the large and strong integrated circuit enterprises and the rapid development of small and medium-sized enterprises, promote the integrated development of the integrated circuit industry to cluster development, and comprehensively enhance the international competitiveness of the integrated circuit industry.
Finally, we must persist in optimizing the business environment and jointly build a sound industrial development order. All types of enterprises are treated equally, and large and small enterprises are treated equally. Further strengthen the protection of intellectual property rights, promote the accumulation of talent market, technology, capital and other industrial elements, and create an open, transparent and efficient market environment.
