China set out a plan to step up its manufacturing sector, dubbed Made in China 2025. The Minister of Industry and Information Technology Miaowei said intelligent technology is the key to a strong manufacturing industry.  

Intelligent manufacturing is based on internet of things, cloud computing, and big data. These technologies will be involved in every aspect of the manufacturing process, to realise machine optimised decisions. 

"We plan to build four parameters in the future, to realise information sharing and communication between people and things, and between people and people. For example, the auto industry has made unmanned vehicles as a goal to achieve before 2020. We will also build a foundation for internet of things, and solve problems in broadband speed, bandwidth and fees," said Miao Wei, minister of Ministry of Industry & Information Tech.

Miao said internet will become the powering engine for intelligent manufacturing, and the idea coincides with Germany's Industry 4.0.

"Made in China 2025 and Germany raised idealogy Industry 4.0 are largely similar. It's a combination of internet and advanced technology. It will push up a new round of manufacturing development. But we still have big difference among regions and sectors in China  in terms of technology. We still have to catch up on industry 2.0 and industry 3.0 before we reach the stage of 4.0. But the binding of internet and manufacturing is a good opportunity to speed up our development," Miao said.

China plans to upgrade level of intelligence in key manufacturing sectors by 2020, meanwhile cut costs by 30 percent in pilot projects. Till 2025 key sectors will become fully intelligent, and manufacturing costs will go down by a half.
