China has revealed its economic roadmap for the next few years, and among the government’s most aggressive objectives feature some significant breakthroughs in quantum technologies – which, if they are achieved, would firmly establish the nation as a leading quantum superpower. This year marks the start of China’s 14th five-year plan, which sets goals and strategies for developing the country’s economy up until 2025. Drafted in collaboration with the government’s official political advisory body, the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC). Quantum scientist Pan Jianwei, who is a member of the CPPCC, said that the plan includes “major national scientific and technological projects in frontier fields including quantum information technology.” Quantum Computing Quantum computers are coming.
