China Daily

Beijing International Youth Innovation and Development Forum is set to open at the Zhongguancun International Innovation Center on April 28. This event, serving as a parallel session to the 2024 Zhongguancun Forum, focuses on the talent sector with the theme "Gathering Youth Power and Promoting Innovation Development."

Its goals are to foster a consensus on supporting the development of international young talents, enhance the shared use of global innovative resources, and provide talent and intellectual support for the high-quality development of Beijing.

Young talents are encouraged to engage in international exchanges and cooperation and help Beijing culminate a more international and diversified pool of innovative resources that serve the construction of the capital's "four-center" functions, namely the national political, cultural, international exchanges, and scientific and technological innovation centers.

Beijing Municipal Human Resources Bureau, China Daily, the Beijing Overseas Talents Center, and the Talent Work Leading Group of Haidian District Committee are jointly hosting the forum, which will invite distinguished guests from international organizations, government departments, diplomatic embassies, and multinational companies to deliver speeches on site.

It will also feature keynote presentations from prominent universities, enterprises, and international organizations in the education and technology sectors on how to unite youth power to drive innovation development, and foster discussions with outstanding young representatives in innovation and entrepreneurship on the key elements of youth innovation development.

Organizers said that this forum would launch the Contact Beijing•Global Network for Innovation Services (GNIS). As an essential part of Contact Beijing, GNIS will focus on young talent and use targeted services to build a global innovation resource cooperation platform. Additionally, the forum will sign agreements for joint training of international talents, and release the "2024 Global Youth Science and Technology Innovation Development Report" to foster a conducive environment for the collaborative development and innovation of young talent globally.

Beijing International Youth Innovation and Development Forum, initiated by the Beijing Overseas Talents Center in 2021, was created to solidify innovative ideas from the youth and stimulate their vitality. Contact Beijing-GNIS will create a global platform for the exchange and convergence of global youth innovation talent and resources, provide talent and intellectual support for the capital's high-quality development and contribute Beijing's strength to the implementation of the Global Development Initiative and the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.
