The 2019 Zhongguancun Forum announced key achievements on Friday afternoon, including new government policies and nine projects, showing the high-quality development in the science and technology sectors in the capital.

The reform policies involve the talent incentive, supportive measures to the medical instrument industry, finance and artificial intelligence.

Meanwhile, nine innovation projects were signed this afternoon, which cover the bio-pharmaceutical industry, AI chips, industrial internet and network safety.

Laura Citron, CEO of London & Partners, the international promotional agency for London, spoke at the forum, saying that China made significant achievements in the science and technology sector and that there is a growing number of Chinese entrepreneurs investing in London.

London has been very open to investors from China and other places in the world. So is China, she said.

She believes there will be lots of opportunities to cooperate with Zhongguancun, which is very dynamic in investment, she said, adding we also have a lot to learn from Zhongguancun.

The forum was first held in 2007 with a commitment to promote innovation and development. Since then, it has become an open venue for scientific and technological experts from around the world to communicate and cooperate.

This year's forum is being held in Zhongguancun, a suburban area of the capital sometimes called China's Silicon Valley.

The 2019 forum – themed Cutting-Edge Technologies and Future Industries – began on Wednesday and ends on Friday.

Around 1,200 business, financial and academic figures from 50 countries and regions – including the United States, Canada, Germany, Britain, France and Japan – were in attendance.
