China will issue temporary licenses in selected cities this year to promote commercial use of the new, fifth-generation (5G) of wireless telecom technology, China’s industry minister said in an interview with state broadcaster China Central Television.

Miao Wei, China’s minister of industry and information technology, said Thursday that the country will accelerate construction of 5G networks and production of related equipment at home while pushing forward the use of the new technology in education, healthcare and other areas.

China is racing to embrace the next generation of super-speedy wireless networks, which is expected to be a driving force in the next industrial revolution, although China’s tech heavyweights Huawei and ZTE face stiff headwinds in international markets.

In the future, about 20% of the 5G network will be devoted to communication while 80% will serve the internet of things such as appliances and vehicles, Miao said.

The minister also pledged further reductions of taxes and fees to support the country’s manufacturing sector and further open up its market.
