Improving the Construction level of Scientific Research and breeding Base in South China
Hu Chunhua, member of the political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and vice premier of the State Council, went to Hainan Province on the 8th for investigation and research. He stressed: it is necessary to thoroughly study and implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important instructions, and further strengthen the protection and management of the construction of southern propagation bases in accordance with the decisions and arrangements of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council. We will speed up the establishment of a "southern Silicon Valley" that serves the whole country by integrating scientific research, production, sales, scientific and technological exchanges, and transformation of achievements.
Hainan Province is an important scientific research and breeding base of crop seeds in China. Hu Chunhua successively came to Hainan Experimental Station of crop Science Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and National Hybrid Rice Center to investigate the progress of national southern breeding base construction and to gain an in-depth understanding of the development and popularization of scientific research and breeding.
Hu Chunhua pointed out that South Propagation Scientific Research and breeding Base is a valuable agricultural scientific research platform, which plays an irreplaceable role in breeding, identification and screening, gene function research and so on. It is necessary to earnestly guarantee the land for scientific research in the south, speed up the construction of supporting service areas for scientific research, strive to create an innovative platform for scientific research and breeding, and improve the scientific and technological innovation ability of the. It is necessary to strengthen the protection of germplasm resources, actively promote the construction of a transit base for the introduction of global animal and plant germplasm resources, step up efforts to cultivate excellent new varieties with independent intellectual property rights, and better implement the strategy of storing grain in technology. It is necessary to actively cultivate the development of large seed industry companies, promote the transformation of agricultural scientific and technological achievements, and speed up the formation of seed industry innovation highlands and industrial agglomeration centers.
