Li Baodong,secretary-general of the Boao Forum for Asia, pointed out in the openingremarks that GII has shown a shift towards multipolarity in the globalinnovation landscape in recent years, with Asian countries substantiallyincreasing their STI capabilities.

Director Liu Hua introduced that GII is oneof WIPO’s flagship publications, tracking the most recent global innovationtrends and measuring the innovation performance of around 132 economies. Thereport is published annually. China moves up 1 spot and ranks 11th among the132 economies featured in GII 2022, having steadily gained in the rankingsduring the past decade and still being the only middle-income economy in theGII top 15 for many years. China ranks first in 9 of the 81 individualindicators used by GII 2022 and boasts 3 of the world’s top 10 science andtechnology clusters – Shenzhen-Hong Kong-Guangzhou (2nd), Beijing (3rd) andShanghai-Suzhou (6th).

Xie Hongxing (Tonny), Director of BCAA,proposed at the meeting: "The GII 2022 found that global innovation is ata crossroads. This is particularly evident in the innovation and promotion ofgreen technology. The European energy crisis has led Germany, France, Polandand other countries to put coal and other fossil fuels on the agenda again, andmany countries have proposed plans to postpone their climate commitments.However, China is still unswervingly pursuing the carbon neutral goal andconstantly increasing policy strength. The capital market also takes carbonneutrality as a key investment track in China. With the help of policy andcapital, China's carbon neutral technological innovation has also entered anunprecedented accelerated development path. Green technology is at a criticalcrossroads, and international technological cooperation would becomeparticularly important. Last year, we cooperated with WIPO to introduce theWIPO GREEN City Acceleration Project, a global green technology transfer,application and demonstration project into China. The first pilot project hasbeen put in Beijing. Now, two demonstration projects have been successfullyimplemented. We also look forward to working with you in the future to makeinnovations move towards a future that is more conducive to human sustainabledevelopment."
