Era of New Technologies

(Shahid Afraz Khan, Beijing)

There is no denying the fact that the countries of the world which are developed in terms of science and technology are also far ahead of the rest of the world in terms of economic and social development. Today, we have the best example of China, which, while cultivating "scientific ideologies" in the country, has accomplished in the field of science and technology that the world is stunned. According to the latest Global Innovation Index, China ranks 12th in the world, while China is the only middle-income country in the top 15, with the rest of the world topping the list Includes developed and high income countries.

In recent years, China has established itself as a leading country in global innovation, and the world also recognizes China's role in the field of innovation and technology. On the other hand, self-reliance in the field of technology has become the desire of every country in the present times and in this regard, China has formulated a far-reaching plan to make itself a center of innovation in the world so that by 2035, China will be able to emerge as a global innovation leader. In the meantime, the development of key technologies will be promoted. As the world's second-largest economy, China has a number of key strategies for advancing in technology, including artificial intelligence, quantum information, integrated circuits, life and health, brain sciences, aerospace and numerous other fields of science & technology.

Furthering China's efforts in the field of science & technology another important milestone has recently been reached in which Chinese scientists made record-breaking progress in realizing quantum states transmission between two ground stations over 1,200 kilometers apart via a quantum scientific experiment satellite, signaling a giant step towards constructing a global quantum information processing and communication network. The long-distance quantum states transmission, usually being realized by quantum teleportation, is one of the major approaches for building quantum communication networks and an essential requirement for realizing multiple quantum information processing tasks. Assisted by long-distance quantum entanglement distribution, quantum states can be measured and then restructured to achieve long-distance transmission, with the transmission distance theoretically being infinite.

In addition to this achievement, China has expressed its determination to seek self-reliance in science and technology, and to focus on high-quality development throughout the process. To this end, China will improve its "national innovation system" and intensify its efforts to turn the country into a scientific and technological powerhouse. China's position is that not all major technologies in the world can be purchased at this time, so self-reliance in innovation and creativity is the guarantee of lasting success. But this does not mean that development will be pursued in isolation from the rest of the world, but that the process of learning from the major achievements and advances made in the scientific field in other parts of the world will continue. China will continue its positive and constructive role in overcoming global problems. China also seeks to move forward by harmonizing new emerging industries and green development. Such industries include new generation information technology, biotechnology, new energy, new materials, high end products, new energy powered vehicles, environmental protection, aerospace and maritime industries.

China's development plan focuses on deeply integrating the Internet, big data and artificial intelligence with other industries, promoting modern industrialization, and giving priority to emerging industries in the sustainable development process. It is good that China has always supported open, collaborative and mutually beneficial exchanges and cooperation with the rest of the world in the fields of science, technology and innovation, which can benefit even China's close friends like Pakistan.
