- Subsidiary Niche-Tech Kasier (Shantou) Limited Recognised as the Fifth Batch of National-level “Specialised and Sophisticated – Little Giant” Enterprises
The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT)’s 14th Five-Year Plan for Promoting the Development of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) has announced that it is necessary to establish a “one million, one hundred thousand, ten thousand ,a thousand” SMEs gradient cultivation system, which aims for China to nurture 1 million innovative SMEs, 100,000 provincial-level specialized and sophisticated SMEs, 10,000 specialised and sophisticated – Little Giant enterprises, and around 1,000 individual champions in the manufacturing industry. It plans to do this through the dual innovation of SMEs from 2021 to 2025, which will guide SMEs to gradually strengthen their comprehensive strength.
Previously, the fifth batch of national-level specialised and sophisticated – Little Giant SMEs were announced, and 3,671 enterprises have been selected. National-level specialised and sophisticated – Little Giant enterprises are recognized at a high level with stringent assessment conditions, and are required to satisfy the six indicators of specialization, sophistication, uniqueness, newness, chain, and product, being the leaders of specialized and sophisticated SMEs. These are the championing enterprises that adhere to the development strategy of specialization, and typically specialize in niche sectors, with strong innovation capability, high market shares, mastery of key core technologies and excellent quality. From the perspective of industry distribution, over 60% of specialised and sophisticated – Little Giants enterprises belong to the basic industrial field, while over 80% belong to strategic emerging industries and related service sectors. The industry distribution is highly concentrated, which is an important support to ensure the stability of the supply chain and industrial chain.
