He urged taking action quickly to catch up with developed countries in scientific and technological development and to rely more on scientific and technological advances and innovation to realize rapid and sound economic and social development.

Hu praised the CAS and CAE members, China's top scientists, for making excellent contributions to major state science projects, including the manned space flight, super hybrid rice and high-performance super servers.

At the four-day conference, the CAS is to revise its constitution, elect new leadership for its academic divisions, and elect the seventh batch of its foreign associates.

The CAE will elect a new leadership for its presidium. A total of 20 senior engineers will be awarded the Sixth Guanghua Engineering Science and Technology Prize at the conference.

Academic workshops will also be held during the conference.

Under the CAS and CAE constitutions, the two academies must organize conferences of academicians once every two years. The CAS has 704 academicians and foreign associates while the CAE has 701 academicians and foreign associates.
