From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 863 program or State High-Tech Development Plan is a program funded and administered by the government of the People's Republic of China intended to stimulate the development of advanced technologies in a wide range of fields for the purpose of rendering China independent of financial obligations for foreign technologies.[1]

The name 863 comes from the fact that the program was created in the year 1986 in the third month. It was proposed in a letter to the Chinese government by the engineers Wang Ganchang, Wang Dayan, Yang Jiachi and Chen Fangyun and endorsed by Deng Xiaoping.[2]
