The Forum includes themed representations, academic discussion, cooperation exchange, visit and panel discussion, through which the attendants share their wisdom and generate new ideas.
It was proposed in the report of the 19th National Congress of CPC that talents are the strategic resources for China to realize national rejuvenation and gain initiative for international competition. Young talents stand for the innovation force of a country and are the main driving factor of scientific development. Chongqing University, as a national key university directly under the Ministry of Education, and a type-A university included in the First-Rate Program, will take the talents developing strategy as its priority strategy. After closing of the 19th National Congress of CPC, the University printed and issued CPC Chongqing University Committee: Several Opinions on Enhancing Talent Related Work in an All-round Manner of Chongqing University, in an effort to unify the ideology, stimulate vitality of talents, and create a talent development atmosphere and resource guarantee system that are “satisfactory to insiders and appealing to outsiders”, where the outstanding talents are allowed to exert their advantages and make contributions to construction of Chongqing University into a world-first-rate university with Chinese characteristics. When it comes to specific work of talent introduction, Chongqing University highlights “top-grade, precision, advanced and scarce talents” and is implementing the “Intelligence Introduction Plan” and refining the “One-hundred Talents Program”. To this end, it has set up oversea talent introduction work stations and is now holding the Forum to attract talents to join the construction.
It is reported that the municipality of Chongqing is concentrating efforts on talent attraction, retention and utilization. In response to the strategy of rejuvenating the country through science and education and reinvigorating China through human resource development proposed at the 19th National Congress of CPC, the municipality of Chongqing has collected and listened to opinions and suggestion of various sources and has developed the “strategic plan for rejuvenating the city through science and education and reinvigorating Chongqing through human resource development”, and has launched the “Aspiring Talents Program” to attract international talents to Chongqing, and introduce scarce and high-end talents from home and abroad, as the talent and intelligence support for development of key industries of Chongqing. At the same time, the municipality has also introduced several preferential policies to introduce talents. Specific measures taken by the municipality include optimizing talent service, building up public service platforms, implementing the talent service card system and offering residence visa, settle-in allowance and employment and education services for the spouses and children for introduced talents. In addition, the Forum currently being held also serves as a new channel to publicize Chongqing and attract talents. Chongqing enjoys dominant advantages and has a key strategic position in the national innovation-driven development strategy, and therefore needs to attract and gather more young talents with considerable achievements in their respective study areas, and provide talent support for development of key industries of Chongqing, thus lading a solid talent foundation for realizing the “Two-Century Goals”, and bringing about a great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
