What is MIC2025?

The Made in China 2025 (MIC2025) programme is a national development programme of China. The goal of MIC2025 is to comprehensively upgrade Chinese industry and making it more efficient.

Made in China 2025 seeks to engineer a shift for China from being a low-end manufacturer to becoming a high-end producer of goods. The goal is to tap into China’s increasingly wealthy home consumer base as well as the value-added global sourcing segment.

The government’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology released a Made in China (MIC) 2025 document in 2015 – pushing for leadership in robotics, information technology, and clean energy, among other sectors.

As a strategic partner of Ningbo, China, Robocoast provides development organizations, their networks and businesses with an efficient and relatively fast way to meet China’s modernization challenges.
