World Emerging Industry Development Report at the 4th World Emerging Industries Summit

In June 2018, Japan proposed the "Comprehensive Innovation Strategy", promoting development in key areas such as artificial intelligence, intelligent robots, agriculture, new energy, energy conservation and environmental protection, intelligent urban management, and new generation automobiles and health care by encouraging enterprises to be the mainstay and combining government funding, industrial research and output. Japan planned to promote digital agricultural technology nationwide by 2025, and apply Japan's quasi-zenith satellite system (QZSS) to smart agriculture and export it to the Asia Pacific region. Targets were set to reduce the cost and application scale of hydrogen energy. Toyota, Panasonic, Mitsubishi and many other big companies are entering the relevant industries. A 100 billion vision fund of Japan's Softbank Group will be invested in technology companies.

South Korea released the fourth five-year science and technology plan, the "2019 Government Investment Innovation Program", "Innovative Growth Engine" program, and "Artificial Intelligence R&D Strategy". Based on the advantages in computer, LCD panel and new generation screen display, such areas as smart city, artificial intelligence, 3D printing were chosen. It is planned to invest 2 billion US dollars for artificial intelligence applications, train 5,000 artificial intelligence students, and set up six artificial intelligence graduate schools with 1370 AI professionals and develop 350 senior researchers. It is also proposed to prepare for the fourth industrial revolution through the development of innovation engines, and to list advanced materials as an innovation growth engine. It is planned to become the world's fourth largest exporter of advanced materials.

At the same time, emerging economies have also joined the process of strategic emerging industry cooperation and development.

India set up a special artificial intelligence team, released the "National Intelligence National Strategy", plans to invest 477 million US dollars for artificial intelligence, machine learning and other technologies, seeking artificial intelligence strategies in developing countries, pointing out the importance of government's overall strategy in AI development. Five key areas of AI application were identified, including health, agriculture, education, smart cities and infrastructure, and transportation. At present, India has a good momentum in the development of information software and pharmaceutical industries. At the same time, India's new energy industry has sprung up. By the end of 2018, India's rooftop solar installed capacity will be 3,855 megawatts, and in 2022 it will reach 40,000 megawatts. The Indian central government will also provide about $1.656 billion in subsidies to support the plan.

The South African government released the White Paper on Science, Technology and Innovation, emphasizing the need to accelerate the breakthrough process in the fields of biotechnology, nanotechnology and advanced manufacturing.
