China to boost popularity of science

The Chinese government is aiming to improve science communication in the country, as part of a reporting exercise on its capacity to demonstrate the usefulness of science to the public.

The exercise looked at China’s efforts in popularising science between 2006 and 2016, the state-run news agency Xinhua reported on 16 June. These include books and news articles about science, as well as science education in schools, said Xu Yanhao, the vice-president of the China Association for Science and Technology.
