He indicated that there was no doubt about the importance of technology innovation for the development of a country and city. Pujiang Innovation Forum, as one of the biggest forums in China, is a high level forum that Shanghai Government hosts. The forum attracted hundreds of important guests each year, which forms extensive social impact. The government will continue to facilitate the platform of publishing and explaining new policies. We need to improve in theme planning, participation expansion and mechanism operation. Meanwhile, the forum will further enhance extensive partnership with social forces in order to create a new mode of win-win cooperation.
