National Security Integral Part of S&T GlobalizationAs a developing country, China will always view national security as an integral part of science and technology globalization, Vice Minister of Science and Technology Xu Guanhua said this week.
He made the remarks in a speech at the 21st Century Forum -- Conference 2000, which was organized by the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee and closed in Beijing Friday.
Xu noted that S&T globalization has reached a new stage in the worldwide economic development.
"S&T globalization has expanded the implications of state security especially information security and brought challenges to state information and technical security," he said.
"We must strengthen the IPR (intellectual property right) protection of relevant technologies, enhance the national security awareness of relevant personnel and prevent the technologies from flowing out through irregular channels," he added.
Despite the security concern, the vice minister said China will continue its opening policy and actively participate in S&T globalization, otherwise, "it will be impossible for China to make full use of international S&T resources to accelerate its S&T and economic development."
According to Xu, the best way for China and developing countries to do this is to adopt a positive attitude, which will enable them to make full use of opportunities offered by globalization while avoiding disadvantages associated with it.
He stressed that if China is to meet the challenge of globalization, it must increase its S&T input, train a high- caliber contingent of scientists and technicians, and upgrade the international management level of Chinese enterprises.
