Source:Original    Writer:admin    Released on:2017-08-24    

The Pujiang Innovation Forum is a high-level international forum jointly organized by the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China and the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government. The forum founded in 2008 has been held nine times, attracting Chinese and foreign government, academic and business elites to carry out in-depth exchanges on various hot issues in the field of Chinese innovation. To promote regional innovation and propel innovation-driven development in provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities), Beijing Municipality, Sichuan Province, Heilongjiang Province, Jiangsu Province and Zhejiang Province have participated in the Pujiang Innovation Forum as province (municipality) of honor and achieved good effect since the province of honor mechanism was established in 2012.

The 10th Pujiang Innovation Forum themed “Global Science and Technology Innovation Hubs: Patterns and Prospects” will be held from September 22 to 24, 2017 in Shanghai. Beijing Municipality and Anhui Province, having been invited to be the province and municipality of honor, will jointly participate in the work of forum organization and jointly discuss the building of science and technology innovation hubs with global influence to support the building of a strong power of science and technology innovation in the world.

Beijing is a national science and technology innovation hub. In early 2014, General Secretary Xi Jinping inspected Beijing and further defined Beijing’s strategic position as a national science and technology innovation hub. In September 2016, the State Council printed and distributed the Overall Plan on Strengthening the Building of a Science and Technology Innovation Hub in Beijing. Shouldering the new mission, Beijing Municipality adjusted the layout and made the Zhongguancun Science City, Huairou Science City, Future Science City and Beijing Economic-Technological Development Area the main platforms for innovation and development; Beijing’s science and technology system reform and other economic and social reforms were launched at the same time and promoted as a whole, kicking off the “cantata” of all-round innovation and reform.

Anhui is a stronghold of science and technology in China. When General Secretary Xi Jinping inspected Anhui in April 2016, he hoped Anhui could take innovation as the biggest policy. Anhui shouldered the national strategic tasks of building an innovative province, building a national independent innovation demonstration zone and fully experimenting innovation and reform in recent years, and is building Hefei into a comprehensive national science hub. Anhui has contributed many “unique” science and technology achievements in the fields of quantum communication and thermonuclear fusion, and innovative enterprises such as iFLYTEK have emerged. Innovation has become the most powerful growth engine behind and the most salient time characteristic of Anhui’s development.

The call for building a strong science and technology power in the world has been made. In the future, how will Beijing, Shanghai, Anhui and other places implement innovation-driven development focusing on the building of science and technology innovation hubs and provide strong support for China to become a first-tier innovative country? At this Pujiang Innovation Forum, what sparks the province (municipality) of honor strike? Let’s look forward to the participation of Beijing Municipality and Anhui Province together!
