China Innovation Policy Series
The purpose of the China Innovation Policy Series (CIPS) is to analyze trends in technology innovation in China and consider the implications for government policies and business strategies. The series examines general trends as well as a range of strategic sectors that have different economic dynamics, including: the Internet, new-generation vehicles (electric and autonomous vehicles), semiconductors, artificial intelligence, commercial aircraft, and pharmaceuticals. Over the life of the two-year project, reports are being issued on each sector, and CSIS is hosting events to discuss these reports and the broader issues that will shape China’s innovation path and how others in government and industry should respond.
CIPS is a joint project of the Freeman Chair in China Studies and the Technology Policy Program at CSIS. We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of our partners: Microsoft Corporation, the General Electric Foundation, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the Semiconductor Industry Association, and the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO).
