Wan Gang, Minister of Science and Technology

"Taking the road of independent innovation with Chinese characteristics, we must cultivate ambitious and innovative personnel. The number of technology professionals has expanded rapidly through 30 years of reform and opening up. At present, our scientific and technological professionals number 42 million, ranking first in the world. The number of research and development (R&D) staff stands at 190 million. Young scientists have become the major force driving China's research, science and technology team. Researchers under 45 account for nearly 80 percent of the total. We have to focus on national strategic needs, and actively participate in big international science projects, including the response to global climate change, the development of a low-carbon economy and other major global scientific and technological problems."
