BEIJING, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- The head of China's top scientific think tank on Monday urged the country to seize opportunities presented in the world's new round of technological revolution.

Bai Chunli, president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), said during an interview with Xinhua that while facing the new round of science and technology revolution, developed countries and emerging ones stand at the same starting line.

China, as a developing country, should make good use of global innovation resources and draw on the good practices of developed countries in order to avoid detours and catch up with those countries that are currently leaders in technology, Bai said.

He also urged strategic planning at the national level to raise science and technology to a more prominent place, stressing research in basic sciences and pioneering disciplines where revolutionary findings might emerge, including material sciences, life sciences, information sciences and earth sciences.

Furthermore, he said China's capacity for science and technology innovation has improved significantly over the past decade.
