China's 5G technology rises to the top of global leadership

The Asian giant is at the forefront in terms of research, development, design and manufacturing of this technology.

The commercialization of 5G technology has directly stimulated total economic output of nearly 5,6 trillion yuan (about $787.530 billion) in China over the past five years, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

Zhao Zhiguo, chief engineer of the ministry, disclosed the figure at a mobile telecommunications forum, citing research by the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology.

5G technology has also indirectly boosted 14 trillion yuan in economic output, demonstrating its important contribution to the country's high-quality development, he added.

The official also said that since the issuance of 5G commercial licenses on June 6, 2019, China has achieved global leadership in 5G network infrastructure, continuous advancements in key core technologies and notable results in the integration of digital and physical applications.

By the end of April, China had amassed nearly 3,75 million 5G base stations, or about 26 base stations per 10.000 people. At the same time, the country's essential 5G standard patent claims accounted for more than 42 percent of the global total.

5G technology has been widely used in key industries such as mining, electricity and healthcare, and has gradually penetrated from peripheral links to core areas such as research and development, design and manufacturing.

In the next step, the ministry will make continuous efforts to help deepen 5G network coverage, accelerate the expansion of 5G applications, and actively promote the modernization of the computer and communications industry, Zhao said.
