The development in Mainland China is shifted to a new level of innovation-driven economy. A long chain from basic research to technological breakthrough and then to product development and market share consolidation has to be fully activated. The basic research in the New Era exhibits four features: dynamic upgrading in all disciplines, steady improvement for research quality and integrity, the emergence of new generation, and the uprising in international collaborations. China is also marching for new breakthroughs: door-opening contributions, applied researches of key national competitiveness, new scientific facilities attracting global scientists, and world-class research teams. We will conclude by mentioning three weaknesses in the research of Mainland China: health and agriculture, environmental and earth science, and core high technology. Examples and data will be presented to support our analyses.
