Turing Award winner Jack Dongarra, who will attend the parallel session themed "Intelligent Technology and Future Industry Development", also delivered remarks via video. He said that the rapid development of intelligent technology, supercomputers and artificial intelligence is making computing faster and that more and more tech giants, including Chinese companies, are now faced with opportunities that will eventually reshape the industry of the future.

Wang Dawei, economics affairs officer at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, gave a briefing on the sub-forum themed "Driving Green Investment and Trade to Jointly Build Global Eco-Civilization". He believes the forum will promote more international conversation and cooperation.
