At present, the strategic emerging industry has become the key to upgrading a country's industrial structure and to winning a priority of economic development. Various countries start to consider the development of emerging industries as a national level strategy and apply a portfolio of policy tools to promote the development of emerging industries. Therefore, research of the important measures adopted by other countries in promoting the development of emerging industries offers important reference for China to carry out relevant policies. This paper mainly analyzes two classical policy tools adopted by developed countries, including government procurement and government subsidiary, so as to provide reference for China to cultivate and develop its strategic emerging industries.
