Small and medium-sized enterprises are vital to the economic development of a country. The Party Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to the service work of technological innovation for small and medium-sized enterprises.

Regarding how to support the innovation and development of private enterprises, the State Council has given relevant plans: For a long time, we have mainly promoted the transfer and transformation of scientific and technological achievements to establish national high-tech zones, technology business incubators, university science parks, etc., including the recently launched " "Double innovation" activities to strengthen the cultivation of technology-based small and medium-sized enterprises and support the development of the private economy. Through these measures, we will promote the transfer and transformation of scientific and technological achievements and realize industrialization to support the cultivation and development of our private technology enterprises. Mainly carried out the following work:
First, from a policy perspective, we are currently drafting policies and measures to promote the innovation and development of technology-based SMEs. This opinion is in the process of formulation and will be issued soon. At the same time, we also worked with the Federation of Industry and Commerce to issue guidelines to promote the development of private technology innovation, and support the innovation and development of private enterprises from a policy perspective.

In the past, the percentage of deductions was 150%, and now it has reached 175%. With the implementation of this policy alone, the extra deduction for technology-based SMEs will reach 150 billion, and the actual tax cut will reach 37.5 billion.

For example, we support some enterprises, including private enterprises, to establish a number of enterprise state key laboratories and national engineering technology research centers. In the next step, we must continue to support enterprises to build national technological innovation centers. Through these measures, we will further guide our private enterprises to strengthen their innovation capabilities.
