He also reviewed the cooperation between the CAE and the People’s Government of Guangdong Province. Beyond that, he proposed three suggestions for the follow-up service of Guangdong Institute for local development: first, the strategic consulting research should be deepened to better serve local innovation and development; second, CAE Members should be organised to carry out joint scientific and technological research and accelerate the transformation of scientific and technological achievements; third, the focus of work should be shifted to vigorously carry out activities for private enterprises and to assist rural areas with the help of CAE Members.
In order to accelerate the implementation of the goal of making Guangdong a strong manufacturing province, the Guangdong Government has established an expert advisory committee for the construction of Guangdong Province to a strong manufacturing province and held its first meeting after the above-mentioned meeting.
