In his speech, Secretary Huai Jinpeng pointed out that the world is facing earth-shaking changes. We have come to the turning point of digital intersections: on the one hand, the revolution of science, on the other hand, the shaping of industry, the combination of them requires different fields. People from different industries are united and cooperate to realize interconnection and information sharing among various fields. The book "The World Out of Control" describes a new world of biological, digital, and manufacturing integration through continuous technological adjustment. We need to share the experience, information, knowledge, and problem-solving with people with lofty ideals such as universities, enterprises, and research institutions. Ways to achieve a win-win situation, and then meet new challenges and a better tomorrow.

In his speech, Academician Zhou Ji pointed out that since July 2016, the Chinese Academy of Engineering and the China Association for Science and Technology have organized hundreds of academicians and experts to carry out research and form the "China Intelligent Manufacturing Development Strategy Research Report". In the process of promoting intelligent manufacturing, it is inseparable from the participation of enterprises, universities, scientific research institutions and professional organizations. The Chinese manufacturing industry must continuously expand exchanges with manufacturing industries around the world and implement a higher level of openness. China's market is an open market, and China's innovation system is an open innovation system. We must work together with the world's manufacturing industry to jointly promote a new generation of intelligent manufacturing, jointly promote a new round of industrial revolution, and make the manufacturing industry better for the benefit of mankind.
