1. The central government budget will add items for investment in supporting technology advances or upgrades for qualifying IC enterprises, rewarding and supporting enterprises' cross-regional reorganizations and acquisitions, and promoting enterprises' use of intellectual property and other intangible assets as collateral for loans in order to expand enterprises' finance channels.

3. Preferential VAT policy for software products, and tax breaks on operating taxes and revenue taxes for qualifying enterprises will continue to be applied.

4. Improvements to R&D employee incentive mechanisms, encouraging qualifying universities and IC enterprises to jointly establish microelectronics institutes, and increased recruiting of senior personnel from overseas will be made.

5. Further promotion of legitimately licensed software, regulation that government offices use licensed software, and guidance of enterprises and the public at large to use licensed software will be implemented.
