Li Qiang, Party chief of Shanghai, said that global innovation has been active because of international and interdisciplinary collaboration, and Shanghai will open major science facilities for international cooperation as much as it can, striving for original discoveries and major breakthroughs.
The city is focusing its innovation efforts on chips, artificial intelligence and biomedicine, and will provide more market access for foreign enterprises and better intellectual property protection, Li said.
Wang Zhigang, minister of science and technology, stressed people-centered innovation, drawing examples from technological achievements used in targeted poverty alleviation efforts and sustainable development.
Singapore is this year's country of honor, and Heng Swee Keat, its deputy prime minister, gave a keynote speech at the opening ceremony introducing innovations in Singapore in waste treatment, water recycling and indoor vegetable farming and expressed Singapore's willingness to cooperate with Shanghai.
A plan to build a national pilot zone in Shanghai for next-generation artificial intelligence was also announced at the forum. The new zone will focus on fundamental research in artificial intelligence, such as brain-inspired intelligence and intelligent unmanned systems, and will aim to become a global center of AI theory, application and talent by 2023.
The forum included 15 different subforums, each dealing with an aspect of innovation, such as entrepreneurship, innovative city clusters and international technology transfers.
