At present, the centre has made phased objectives in core components and parts, robot, big data and so on.

  Compared to developed countries, agricultural machinery in China has four main problems: first, science and technology innovation ability is not strong enough; second, agricultural machinery and techniques are not closed integrated; third, the collaborative effect of innovation subjects has not been formed; fourth, some key materials still rely on others countries. So the national centre has great significance of transformation and high quality development of agricultural machinery industry and it is the core support for our countrys agricultural modernization.

  Wang Zhijun said the centre must do four things well: firstly, focusing on key generic technology; secondly, strengthening engineering innovation; thirdly, strengthening industrialization and industrial technology innovation alliance; fourthly, insisting on enterprise operation mechanism.
