            As a part of the Conference on International Exchange of Professionals (CIEP), the Forum on Scientific and Technological Innovation Underpinning Rural Revitalization kicked off online on June 22.

            With a focus on international sci-tech cooperation and professional exchange in agriculture, the first sub forum was held on the same day.

            During the sub forum, Li Xin, deputy director-general of Department of Foreign Expert Services, the Ministry of Science and Technology, introduced the status quo of international cooperation and talent exchange in agricultural sci-tech innovation in China, and measures to be taken to promote such exchange during the 14th Five-Year Plan period.

            Mikami Yoshiyuki, counselor of the Embassy of Japan in China, introduced the current situation of smart agriculture in Japan, and hoped the exchange within different countries will be an opportunity for further development of smart agriculture in the future.

            Jihong Liu Clarke, research professor and coordinator for China relations at the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research, shared insights in knowledge transfer between China and Europe via the project SiEuGreen, which aspires to enhance the EU-China cooperation in promoting urban agriculture for food security, resource efficiency and smart, resilient cities.

            Experts from other institutions in China, Japan and Romania also shared their views.

            Lasting for four days, the forum was an extension of the international cooperation matchmaking meeting on sci-tech innovation supporting rural revitalization held by CIEP last year.

            Driven by needs, the forum aims to share ideas and experience of development in agriculture and rural areas, provide opportunities for international sci-tech innovation cooperation and talent exchange in agriculture and rural development areas, and set up pragmatic platforms to serve for rural revitalization.
