The new round of scientific, technological and industrial innovation being promoted globally is having a profound influence on the world's development pattern. The international environment is becoming more complex with rising uncertainty and instability, which poses unprecedented challenges to mankind.

Scientific and technological innovation serves as an important engine driving social development. All countries should uphold peace, development, cooperation and win-win partnership, and work together to cope with unknown risks and challenges.

China's sci-tech community has always adhered to the concept of openness, cooperation and innovative development. It focuses on frontier science and technology, the main economic battlefield, major State needs and the improvement of people's lives and health.

The community is also committed to improving the innovative progress of science and technology, as well as stimulating the vitality of sci-tech innovation, promoting the spirit of scientists, and strengthening the ethical governance of science and technology.

It has proactively participated in global sci-tech governance and contributed to the building of a community with a shared future for humankind.

The China Association for Science and Technology, which is the largest non-governmental organization of sci-tech professionals in China, serves as a bridge to link millions of Chinese scientists, engineers and other professionals working in this field.

One major task of the association is to conduct academic exchanges and promote the construction of world-class sci-tech journals and institutions, in a bid to give full play to its irreplaceable role in academic innovation.

The association insists on carrying forward the scientific spirit, popularizing scientific knowledge, organizing science education activities among the youth, and improving the scientific literacy of all citizens. The proportion of Chinese citizens with "scientific qualities" increased from 3.27 percent in 2010 to 10.56 percent in 2020.

Moreover, it highlights international sci-tech exchanges and cooperation. The association and its branches nationwide have joined 372 international sci-tech organizations, aiming to participate in global sci-tech governance and play a unique role in non-governmental international sci-tech exchanges and cooperation. Although profound changes have been taking place in both the domestic and international environment on the new stage of development, China will strengthen its confidence and actions to increase opening-up and cooperation.
