In her speech, Inspector Zhong Xiaolin said that more than 3,000 post-doctoral research stations participated in the last year’s national post-doctoral work evaluation, and only 221 were awarded excellent stations. She expressed congratulations to CTA for its outstanding achievements in post-doctoral management. At present, 3,318 postdoctoral research mobile stations and 3,850 postdoctoral research work stations have been set up in China, and a total of 260,000 postdoctoral researchers have been recruited. Most of the 150,000 postdoctoral researchers out of the stations have become the backbone of scientific research and academic technology leaders of the country, and 125 postdoctoral researchers have been elected as academicians. The postdoctoral system has become an important channel for various regions and departments to cultivate and attract high-level talents. Postdoctoral researchers have become the most active and innovative group of high-level young talents. They are the strategic reserve of leading scientific and technological talents, the backbone of innovation team, and the backbone of young scientific and technological talents. During the “14th Five-year Plan”, we should fully implement General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important instructions on talent work for the postdoctoral work, fully grasp the new situation and new requirements in the new stage of development, highlight training priorities, innovate the working mechanism, create a good ecology, ensure the quality of training, and accelerate the training of a large number of young postdoctoral talents, so as to provide talent support for China to achieve breakthroughs in key and core technologies and become a leading innovation-oriented country.


Deputy Director Xu Jin expressed that postdoctoral talents are the new force of culture and tourism system theory construction and industrial innovation, and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism attaches great importance to and actively supports the development of postdoctoral programs in directly affiliated research institutes. On the forum, three suggestions were put forward for culture and tourism system stations and postdoctoral researchers: 1. based on the historical orientation of building a modern socialist country, improve the political position, thoroughly implement General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important instructions on talent work, enter a new development stage, implement the new development concept, build a new development pattern, and train high-level talents with both political integrity and ability; 2. pay more attention to the important practice and theory of culture and tourism development, stick to Xi Jinping Theory of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, use the marxist stand, viewpoint, method and analysis to solve problems, go into the front line, take the the people’s need for a better life as the starting point and the basis, and enable theoretical study to better respond to the demands of the times; 3. attach greater importance to the training of young and middle-aged theorists, explore ways to establish a high-level training system for young and middle-aged professionals, improve mechanisms to encourage and guarantee innovation, create a favorable atmosphere for talents to work and start their own businesses, and stimulate the creativity of young talents.


 As the representative of the host, Mr. Chen Rong expressed that the new development pattern has given tourism a new mission. During the “14th Five-Year Plan” period, the recovery of tourism market and tourism economy is irreversible, and innovation, integration and high quality will be the key words of tourism development. COVID-19 has pushed the tourism industry into a new period of transformation and development. We need to actively adapt to the changes in the market and consumer demands, make full use of information technology, reshape the industry’s competitive advantages, and create a new image of China’s tourism brand. China Tourism Group will focus on four aspects to jointly promote high-quality tourism development: 1. research and practice on the application of scientific and technological innovation and digital transformation in the tourism scene to provide a platform for the marketization of scientific and technological achievements; 2. promote the research and exploration of key topics under the new development patterns such as eco-tourism, etc.; 3. promote the construction of versatile talents in tourism; 4. deepen the integration of industry and learning, and build an innovative system and development model for the integrated development of industry, learning and research.
