For some years, rumours have existed that China’s Ministry of Science and Technology, also known as MOST, would eventually be closed down or at least merged with other ministries. Naturally, it therefore also came as a surprise when China’s National People's Congress in March 2018 approved restructuring plans, which will actually strengthen the ministry.

ICDK Shanghai’s Innovation Attaché, Martin Bech has written a blogpost on China’s new “super” ministry and its meeting with the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science on 25 May 2018. The post is in Danish, and can be found right here.
