Guizhou province, located in southwest China, has seen rapid development during the last decade. In 2021, Guizhou's regional innovation capacity ranked 18th, up four places from 2015.

This June, an action plan on advancing Guizhou's high-quality development via sci-tech support was released by the Ministry of Science and Technology and Guizhou provincial government. This is concrete implementation of the guideline titled Supporting Guizhou to Break New Ground in the New Era, issued by the State Council in late 2021.

According to the plan, open innovation patterns with innovative cities and counties, and high-tech industrial zones as the engine, will be established in Guizhou by 2025.

Leading experts in such industries as the digital economy, high-level manufacturing, and mountain farming are welcomed, says the plan. To create a good innovation ecosystem, sci-tech reform is highlighted in this plan, which proposed granting researchers the ownership of research achievements or the long-term right to use, and exploring market-oriented allocation of technology factors.

Guizhou is home to the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST), which is the largest and most sensitive radio telescope in the world, and has huge potential for verifying and exploring mysteries of the universe. Promoting the scientific output of FAST was listed as a key task in this plan, proposing to increase support from national science and technology plans for FAST's core scientific goals, and improve its data resource integration capacity.

China would support Guizhou in building national major innovation platforms in development and utilization of predominant mineral resources, digital technology, aerospace science and technology, energy conservation and carbon reduction, says the plan, adding that Guizhou is also supported in applying for the construction of a national technological innovation center and building a green innovation base for aluminum-based new materials.

Xiong Qing, an official from the Guizhou Provincial Department of Science and Technology, said sci-tech support for high-quality development of the province not only needs local innovation resources, but also needs to create an open cross-regional innovation system.

For example, new collaboration patterns like "R&D in east China and manufacturing in Guizhou" and "producing research achievements in east China and commercialization in Guizhou" will deepen Guizhou's sci-tech cooperation with eastern regions, and promote the flow of talented individuals, enterprises, research projects and research institutes to the province, said Xiong.
