Quantum information science has in recent years gained recognition in China as an important research area for the future. For example, two major research projects were launched in 2010 to develop quantum computer chips and scalable quantum networks. Tsinghua University, a premier university in China, inaugurated an interdisciplinary quantum information center dedicated to achieving excellence in all aspects of the field. In this presentation we survey the research landscape of quantum information in China, and highlight some of the promising current directions.
