Xi said in the letter that with the accelerating new round of sci-tech revolution and industrial transformation, innovation, development and cooperation with win-win results have become an inevitable trend.

"China is willing to take an active part in global innovation cooperation, share development achievements with other countries and jointly build a community with a shared future for humanity," said Xi, who noted that Zhongguancun is making efforts to build a world-leading sci-tech park and innovation highland.

The ZGC Forum is of great significance to the sharing of innovative ideas and development concepts among all countries by discussing cutting-edge science and technologies, future industrial development trends, global innovation rules and innovative governance, he said.
