Abstract：The United State's National Quantum Initiative has been implemented for 2 years. This paper reviews the relevant laws, the management mechanisms, the key policy areas, the funding and implementation progress of the National Quantum Initiative, and analyzes the implementation characteristics of the National Quantum Initiative from the aspects of the strategic deployment, the coordinated promotion, the multi-disciplinary platform construction, the Quantum-Smart Workforce and the international cooperation. Finally, some suggestions are put forward to strengthen and optimize China's quantum science and technology strategic plan, promote overall planning and coordination, and establish a quantum technology innovation ecosystem.
