China will plan ahead and nurture future industries particularly in quantum information, hydrogen energy and energy storage sectors, the country's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said on Monday.

Meng Wei, the NDRC spokesperson, said at a news conference that the NDRC will work with competence departments in planning and nurturing potential future industries. These industries will mainly be focused in fields of the most advanced technologies and industrial transformation, such as brain-like intelligence, quantum information, gene technology, future internet, and hydrogen and energy storage.

Geographically, such efforts will be mainly rolled out in regions that excel in science and education resources and with strong industrial bases. Research institutions and pilot parks will be built in these regions. Meanwhile, more projects will be put in place to formulate application scenarios for these future technologies.
