SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) WANG GANG, Minister of Science and Technology
"A nation's innovation capacity and science and technology strength are related to its intensive input and long-term accumulation. China is a developing country. We are still lagging behind other countries in investment and accumulation. So we need to seize opportunities to push forward the reform in science and technology mechanisms. Reform should benefit people. We should invest in the key sectors that will meet people's need and promote the country's development. Only in this way can we gain the competitive edge of innovation."

Initiated in 2008, the Pujiang Innovation Forum is an annual event organized by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Municipal Government of Shanghai.

Russia acts as the Guest Country of Honor in the forum this year.
