China will build seven production bases for new materials to boost the development of high-tech industries, the top economic planning authority said Friday.
The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said the bases would be built in Ningbo, Dalian, Luoyang, Jinchang, Guangzhou, Baoji and Lianyungang.
These bases will turn out new materials for industries covering information technology, biotechnology, aeronautics, new energy and environment protection.
The NDRC required that local government departments offer preferable policies for building these bases and create a sound environment for the development of high-tech industries.
