An exhibition showing China's achievements in scientific and technological innovation during the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020) was held at the Beijing Exhibition Center from October 21 to 27.
Covering an area of over 20,000 square meters, the exhibition consists of 12 parts and displayed a total of more than 1,500 equipment and models, exemplifying China's achievements in multiple areas such as basic research, high-techs, major sci-tech projects, agricultural science and technology, social development, sci-tech innovation in regions, opening up and cooperation, science popularization, etc.
Focusing on the scientific research, economic development, the country's major demands, and the people's welfare, the exhibition selected a number of landmark sci-tech achievements that show the country's sci-tech strength.
The 600 kph high-speed maglev train represents the collaboration of research and industry in China. China has handled core technologies with independent intellectual property rights, and successfully developed a complete set of high-speed maglev engineering equipment with a speed of 600 km per hour, making itself one of the few countries to master this technology.
Science and technology have also made contribution to fighting against COVID-19 epidemic. More than 80 Fire Eye laboratories, firstly developed by Chinese scientists for detection of COVID-19, have been built in nearly 30 countries and regions around the world, and COVID-19 testing products have covered more than 180 countries and regions.
Apart from the symbolic achievements in scientific innovation, the exhibition has also promoted the spirit of scientists and affirmed their hard work in pushing forward scientific progress and facilitating global cooperation.
The event is jointly sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the National Development and Reform Commission and the Beijing Municipal Government, among others.
