BEIJING - Chinese Vice Premier Ma Kai urged better consultative services in the country's manufacturing sector on Tuesday.

He made the remarks at the founding ceremony of a national consultative committee for upgrading the country's manufacturing sector.

To speed up China's transformation into a manufacturing power is a strategic move to enhance national power and security, and achieve the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, Ma said.

The committee is a move to carry out the "Made in China 2025" plan and improve scientific and democratic decisions, he said.

The consultative committee members should provide quality consultative services on key problems and policies to tackle the bottlenecks and weak links in the manufacturing sector, Ma said.

In order to transform China from a world factory into a world manufacturing power, the State Council, or the cabinet, unveiled the "Made in China 2025" plan in May.

The plan lays out strategies for switching from low-end manufacturing to more value-added production, with domestic manufacturers expected to make technological breakthroughs in a number of emerging industries from numerical control tools and robotics to aerospace equipment and new energy vehicles.
