China's Ministry of information Industry has just worked out their layout for the Eleventh 5-year Period, placing a heavy emphasis on 3G development.
The main part of the layout is the industrialization of 3G technologies, such as TD-SCDMA, and the development of related businesses, such as chips, radio devices, efficient batteries and core software. MII says that telecom system reform and 3G development will help optimize the competitive structure of China's telecom market and provide a fair environment for lasting development within the telecom industry.
Wang Xudong, MII's minister, also says that the telecom reforms in 2007 will depend on the opportunities developing within the 3G industry.
At present, the telecom market in China is unbalanced, with China Mobile occupying 70%-80% of the market. The layout forecasts that the income of the information industry in China will reach CNY10 trillion by 2010, with the industry occupying 10% of the nation's GDP.
