China's Ministry of Information Industry has laid out a blueprint for China's software industry during the 11th Five-Year Period, aiming to have the country's self-developed software account for 5% of the world's total by the year 2010.

At a recent conference on technology innovation, three Chinese ministries, including MII, State Development and Reform Commission and Ministry of Science and Technology, listed the information industry as a breakthrough point for Chinese innovation in order to win the country an advantageous position in the global software industry.

Wang Xudong, minister of MII, said that innovation should not be created behind closed doors, but rather in an open environment. He suggested that China actively carry out technological exchanges and cooperation with international organizations to gain an edge in international areas.
