South Korea’s Ministry of Science and Technology: South Korea’s 136 key technologies in 11 fields are “being caught up by China for the first time”

Mainland China’s “Global Times” quoted the Korean media “Chosun Ilbo” on February 29 to report that the “2022 Technology Level Assessment Results” released by South Korea’s Ministry of Science, Technology, Information and Communications that day showed that 136 Key Items 11 areas selected by the South Korean government In terms of technology, South Korea’s relevant development level has “caught up with China for the first time.”

According to the Korean media “Asia Daily”, the evaluation is carried out every two years, including construction transportation, disaster protection, aviationaerospace11 sectors including maritime, national defence, machinery manufacturing, nanomaterials, agriculture, forestry, fisheries and food, health care, energy resources, environment and meteorology, information and communication technology and software. to the United States,European Union,China,JapanThe five major economies of China and South Korea are evaluated through quantitative analysis of papers and patents.

Yonhap News Agency reported that South Korea’s Ministry of Science and Technology held the 57th Steering Committee meeting of the National Science and Technology Advisory Council that day and announced the above results. The assessment of science and technology development level is implemented every two years. This time, relevant papers and patents on 136 key technologies in 11 science and technology fields were analyzed and 1,306 experts were surveyed.

The evaluation results show that the overall technical level of the United States is the highest at 100%, followed by the European Union (94.7%), Japan (86.4%), China (82.6%), and South Korea (81.5%). Compared with 2020, South Korea’s technology level has improved by 1.4%, and the technology gap with the United States has narrowed from 3.3 years to 3.2 years.

However, in the 2020 survey, South Korea (80.1%) had a slight advantage over China (80%). Two years later, China “overtook South Korea in technology for the first time.” In this survey, the technology gap between China and the United States has narrowed to 3 years. Since 2016, Japan’s technological level continues to decline and cannot keep up with the pace of development in the United States.

If we only look at the 50 national strategic technologies, the scientific and technological development levels of each country are, in order: the United States (100%), the European Union (92.3%), China (86.5%), Japan (85.2%). , South Korea (81.7%), and South Korea and China. This gap has increased even further. The report noted that South Korea is ahead of other countries in the field of secondary batteries, but lags behind in aerospace, marine and quantum fields, which is only 55% and 65.8% of the United States, respectively.

According to the report, South Korea’s Ministry of Science and Technology said that South Korea’s valuation in the aerospace and maritime sectors has declined, mainly due to the development of large multi-stage combustion cycle engines, space observation and sensing, lunar observation and advanced aviation. The score is. Gas turbine engine parts. Due to decline. The decline in the evaluation of South Korea’s information and communications technology and software is due to shortcomings in quantum computer, quantum measurement and artificial intelligence infrastructure.
