CBBC Made in China 2025 Report
The China-Britain Business Council’s new report, ‘Made in China 2025’, compiled with the support of UK Department for International Trade, was formally launched in May 2016. The report introduces the background to China’s state-level ‘Made in China 2025’ initiative, describing the status quo and predicted future trends in the 10 priority sectors and the supporting policies adopted by regional governments, as well as our analysis of the opportunities and challenges British companies will encounter as this long-term development plan unfolds.

The report also analyses the UK’s strengths in the 10 corresponding sectors – including technological capabilities, research capacity and the major British players each field – as well as the UK catapult centre model.

The prime objective of the report is to help the two sides understand each other better, helping British companies understand what China needs in order to move up the value chain and achieve the goals of the MIC 2025 plan, while also demonstrating to Chinese companies the UK’s technological and research prowess and its experience in developing smart manufacturing. The report will be made available to download on CBBC’s website www.CBBC.org
