The 2023 Zhongguancun (ZGC) Forum kicked off Thursday in Beijing.
Themed "Open Cooperation for a Shared Future" this year, the six-day gathering has attracted guests from more than 80 countries and regions, as well as the participation of almost 200 international organizations, institutions and foreign government departments.
Participants look forward to exchanging ideas with each other and seek cooperation at the forum.
They also speak highly of China's scientific and technological innovation in recent years, saying the country's progress in the fields will benefit the world.
Established in 1988 in northwestern Beijing, Zhongguancun houses clusters of universities and research institutes.
It is China's first national high-tech industrial development zone and thus dubbed "China's Silicon Valley."
The Zhongguancun Forum has become a platform for global technological exchanges and cooperation.
