Strategy of Invigorating China Through Science and Education
A roadmap stressing development based on progress in science and technology.
In the late 1970s, Deng Xiaoping, the former national leader, stressed that progress in science, technology and education is essential to economic development and modernization. In 1995, Jiang Zemin, then president, pointed out that progress in science and technology was the primary engine for improving the productive force. He said the country should work to boost education and enhance its ability to commercialize the fruits of scientific and technological research. The State has earmarked funding for this strategy ever since it was included in the five-year plan for 1996-2000.
