Chinese President Xi Jinping poses with respiratory disease expert Zhong Nanshan, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) expert Zhang Boli, vaccine researcher and People's Liberation Army (PLA) major general Chen Wei, and head of Wuhan Jinyintan Hospital Zhang Dingyu during a meeting to commend role models in China's fight against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China September 8, 2020.

The Asian country has been a long-running rival and partner of the United States in producing massive technologies from various companies like Apple, Intel, Microsoft, and the like. Most components are made via China's factories and plants which offer less of the production costs compared to the country, essentially cutting costs and saving up. 

However, the tension between the two countries has tightened in the past years, as the United States has enforced a Trade Ban on several Chinese companies including Huawei because of military connections. This issue was repeatedly denied by Huawei but has been banned from using components and tech from Google and Qualcomm, which it heavily relies upon.

For the first time, Oppo just recently became the number one smartphone maker in China. This is the result of two factors: Oppo’s rise and Huawei’s decline. The company has also become the second 5G manufacturers in China.

Before this news, China is known to have been developing a hack-proof quantum computer that could send messages like electronic mail and video calls using next-generation technology. The tech heavily relies on satellites to boost its power and quantum computing which has been the focus of most researchers to develop. 

Artificial Intelligence is also a significant thing in China, as it aims to assign ZTE in creating the country's native AI that could power most of its technology and end its reliance on the United States. Huawei would also join the five-year plan's timeline, helping the country develop and advance in various technologies such as smartphones and computers. 

China's Present Tech Innovations

The Asian country has been developing a collection of impressive innovations in the past years, and it includes robotics, artificial intelligence, and now, 5G connections. The move by the country is to move away from its heavy reliance on partner countries such as the US and be a self-sustainable entity in the current era of technology. 

Moreover, the company has also ventured into various industries in which the US excels, and this includes electric vehicles, AI, and the smartphone technology which Huawei has initially dominated. Technology is one of the largest industries in the world, and China is aiming its sights on developing in this aspect to establish its supremacy.
