font size    

Li Guojie, an academic at the Chinese Academy of Engineering and director of the Institute of Computing Technology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, recently warned that many Chinese core technologies are actually at least two generations behind some foreign countries. Chinese science and technology personnel should be area and concerned about this.

According to China News Agency, Li made these comments during a speech delivered at the China Science and Humanities Forum, sponsored by the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He also said that China has made new achievements in scientific research, which is of course a good thing.

However, with many foreign countries preaching the "China threat" theory, some Chinese in technological circle have become blindly optimistic about the country's technological level. According to Li, a number of core technologies in China are at least two generations behind some foreign countries. Chinese technical and research fellows should strive to close the gap. Li hopes that China can close the gap in core technology with developed countries to one generation by 2010.
