China Develops Traditional Medicine with Modern Technology
China has been making greater efforts to develop traditional Chinese medicine with the use of modern science and technology.
CRI reporter Yang Binyuan updates us on the progress.
The lack of scientific research, and quality control of traditional Chinese medicine, has meant Chinese medicine's quality examination and technology control has developed slowly.
Yu Jing is the head of the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
She says to overcome these restraints and promote the full advantages offered by traditional Chinese medicine, the government is making greater efforts to develop traditional Chinese medicine with modern technology.
"We have organized more than 100 experts to carry out strategic research of the modernization of traditional Chinese medicine. In addition, we are also trying to cultivate more talents and protect the intellectual property rights of it."
In addition, last year alone, the Administration has increased its research fund by about 12.5 million US dollars.
And the Chinese government is preparing to set up a nation level research center for traditional Chinese medicine.
Li Xueyong is Vice Minister of Science and Technology.
He says remarkable achievements have been made thanks to the use of modern technology.
"We have developed some new traditional Chinese medicine with high technology content and technology of plantation of herbal plants have been promoted."
It is estimated that about 100 research centers of traditional Chinese medicine have been established in the country in the past two years.
And with the use of modern technology, traditional Chinese medicine is becoming safer and more effective.

1. Update：补充资料, 更新材料。新闻中记者提到的updates us on the progress实际上就是“请看最新消息，请看详细报道”的意思。
2. traditional Chinese medicine指的就是中药。
3. intellectual property rights：知识产权。
4. Plantation：耕地, 种植园。当plantation出现在名称 Plimoth Plantation（普利茅斯种植园）中时，是具讽刺意味的。它有两个意思，一个是指寻求宗教自由的人的小型社区，另外一个是作为内战前南方庄园的术语，指供白种人居住的漂亮公馆和受压迫的黑人奴隶居住的破旧茅屋。
5. Herbal：草药的。Herbal plants指的就是中草药。 1 2 3 4 5
