A New Era of Sci-Tech Innovation

China Today by Zhang Ying,December 26, 2017 Adjust font size:

Just before the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), on September 29, the world’s first trunk line of quantum telecommunication – the Jing-Hu (Beijing-Shanghai) Trunk Line – opened, which is connected with the world’s first quantum satellite “Micius,” named after an ancient Chinese philosopher. Chinese scientists have successfully achieved intercontinental quantum secure communications, preserving China’s leading role in the global competition within the field.

On August, 1 2017, citizens try out VR headsets to experience the application of virtual reality and big data at the “Yuquan big data application industry innovation experience center” in Hohhot, capital city of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

On the same day, the Lanzhou-Chongqing rail line opened to traffic. The strategic transport trunk line runs from northwest to southwest, linking Gansu and Shaanxi provinces to Sichuan Province and Chongqing Municipality, with most places going through mountainous areas with complex geological conditions.

In 2017, China is presenting the world a new image in a comprehensive and profound way by its growing cutting-edge technologies, technological innovations oriented to people’s wellbeing and innovation friendly environment.
