The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced ten major events this year: the mobile phone traffic tariff dropped to 26 yuan/GB.

  BEIJING, Dec. 22 (Reporter Cheng Chunyu) Today, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced ten major events in 2017: new achievements were made in the full implementation of "Made in China 2025", the domestic long-distance roaming charges for mobile phones were completely cancelled, and the domestic large aircraft C919 successfully made its first flight.

  New achievements have been made in the full implementation of "Made in China 2025"

  In 2017, the vertical linkage and horizontal collaborative working mechanism of "Made in China 2025" became more and more perfect, the implementation of five major projects progressed steadily, the "Made in China 2025" national demonstration zone was launched, and a number of major landmark projects and projects were successively implemented. Add three national manufacturing innovation centers: information optoelectronics, printing and flexible display, and robots; 97 projects carried out pilot demonstrations of multi-field and multi-mode intelligent manufacturing; A number of high-end equipment innovations such as the "Fuxing" Chinese standard EMU with a speed of 350 kilometers per hour are constantly emerging, and the results of service-oriented manufacturing are beginning to show.

  Domestic long-distance and roaming charges for mobile phones have been completely cancelled.

  The three tasks of "canceling all domestic long-distance and roaming charges of mobile phones during the year, greatly reducing the access charges of private Internet lines for small and medium-sized enterprises and reducing the international long-distance telephone charges" have been overfulfilled ahead of schedule. On September 1st, the three basic telecommunications companies completely canceled the domestic long-distance and roaming charges for mobile phones. Small and medium-sized enterprises’ private line tariffs have been greatly reduced, with the highest drop of international long-distance telephone charges exceeding 90%, the average tariff of mobile Internet traffic dropping to 26 yuan /GB, over 80% of fiber-optic broadband users, and 60% of users’ access bandwidth exceeding 50M.

  Domestic large aircraft C919 successfully made its first flight.

  The C919 large passenger plane successfully made its first flight on May 5, 2017 after the final assembly rolled off the assembly line in 2015, realizing the historic breakthrough of the Chinese nation’s century-old "big plane dream". At the same time, a number of high-end equipment have achieved major breakthroughs: the world’s most advanced ultra-deep-water double-rig semi-submersible deep-sea drilling platform "Blue Whale No.1" successfully tested combustible ice in the South China Sea, and the "Fuxing" Chinese standard EMU was officially put into operation on the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway. The ARJ21-700 new regional aircraft has safely transported more than 30,000 passengers.

  Industrial Internet Boosts the Development of Advanced Manufacturing Industry

  In 2017, the framework of industrial Internet standard system (1.0) was released, and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology promoted the construction of a number of industrial Internet platforms. A number of new industrial apps were commercialized, and personalized customization, intelligent production, networked collaboration and service-oriented manufacturing models were increasingly enriched. The pilot demonstration of intelligent manufacturing and the special project of intelligent manufacturing have been steadily promoted, and the penetration rate of "double innovation" platform of key manufacturing enterprises is close to 70%.

  4G(TD-LTE) won the special prize of National Science and Technology Progress Award.

  On January 9, 2017, the project "Key Technologies and Applications of the Fourth Generation Mobile Communication System (TD-LTE)" promoted by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology won the special prize of the National Science and Technology Progress Award. China put forward and dominated the international standard of TD-LTE, which achieved a breakthrough in the whole industrial chain of mobile communication and built the world’s largest 4G network, with the total number of 4G users in China reaching 962 million. Positive progress has been made in the research and development of 5G technology, and the second phase of the experiment has been completed. The mid-band frequency planning has been released first, and technologies such as network architecture have become international standards. Fifteen 5G field test base stations have been built.

  Revision and promulgation of "People’s Republic of China (PRC) Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Promotion Law"

  The revised SME Promotion Law of People’s Republic of China (PRC) will be officially implemented on January 1, 2018. The new law promotes the effective policies in recent years into laws, standardizes the policies related to fiscal and taxation support, and improves the measures related to financing promotion, especially standardizing administrative licensing matters, reducing the burden on enterprises, simplifying tax collection and cancellation registration procedures for small and micro enterprises, and creating a good environment for the development of small and medium-sized enterprises.

  "Double Points Policy" Helps the Healthy Development of New Energy Vehicles

  On September 27, 2017, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and other five departments jointly issued a double-point policy, and at the same time set up two points, namely, the average fuel consumption of enterprises and new energy vehicles, and established a point trading mechanism. Enterprises independently determined the negative point compensation method to achieve two goals of energy saving and consumption reduction and promoting the development of new energy vehicles. In 2017, China’s new energy automobile industry developed rapidly, with both production and sales exceeding 700,000 vehicles, with the number of vehicles exceeding 1.7 million, ranking first in the world for three consecutive years.

  Expanding and upgrading information consumption and continuously releasing domestic demand potential

  In the first three quarters, China’s online retail sales exceeded 4.8 trillion, a year-on-year increase of 34%, accounting for 14% of the total retail sales of consumer goods. New intelligent hardware, virtual reality and other products emerge in an endless stream, and new models and formats such as mobile payment and sharing economy are accelerating. It is estimated that the annual information consumption scale will reach 4.5 trillion yuan, accounting for 10% of the final consumption expenditure.

  The cancer "strip steel" in the iron and steel industry has been completely cleared

  2017 is a crucial year for steel de-capacity, exceeding the government target of 50 million tons of steel de-capacity for the whole year. Concentrate on banning strip steel, which has plagued the development of the industry for many years, and realize the comprehensive clearing of 140 million tons of strip steel, effectively reversing the situation that "bad money drives out good money" in the steel industry.

  Integration of defense and civilian technologies’s development of national defense science, technology and industry has achieved stage results.

  Beidou-3 began global networking, and the accuracy of services in the Asia-Pacific region reached the meter level; The military industry has taken a new step in opening up, and the revised catalogue of scientific research and production licenses for weapons and equipment has been reduced by 62% compared with the original one. More than two-thirds of the main units that have obtained the licenses for the development and production of weapons and equipment are civilian units, and the level of "civilian participation in the army" has been upgraded from general supporting products to overall and sub-systems; The sharing of military and civilian resources has been deepened, and more than 3,000 major test equipment and facilities for national defense science, technology and industry have been released to the society.
