Call to Action for “Self Reliance and Innovation Contest”


Call to Action for “Self Reliance and Innovation Contest“

As a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation advance rapidly, the world’s game changer never seen before in the past century is evolving at a quickened pace. Never has been science and technology profoundly influencing the future and fate of a country as well as people’s lives and wellbeing like it is doing today. Standing on the historic junction of the “two centennial” objectives of struggle, we deeply understand the ardent expectation of General Secretary Xi Jinping and the CPC Central Committee and deeply feel the epochal call for technological self-reliance. On the eve of the 5th national science and technology workers’ day, the 10th national congress of China Association for Science and Technology calls upon all sci-tech workers nationwide to take the action of “self reliance and innovation contest”.  

Be reasonable and more faithful, act diligently and advocate morality. Apprehend the power of faith from the centennial struggle of the Party, build up belief and confidence firmly, bear in mind original aspirations and mission and follow the Party steadfastly. Keep a foothold on the new development stage, implement new development ideas, construct new development patterns and integrate life ideals into the great cause of full-scale construction of a modern socialist country. 

Have the entire motherland in mind and serve the people. Have the “two overall concerns” in mind, keep “the best interests of the nation” in hearts, remain committed to patriotic struggle, act as the pacesetters for high-level technological self-reliance, construct a scientific and technological great wall of sustainable development and persistent security for the country and write wonderful chapters of constructing a world power of science and technology together. 

Innovate and create and bravely scale new heights.  Insist on “four orientations”, constantly march towards the breadth and depth of science and technology, explore “unchartered territory” of innovation bravely with a spirit of keeping up with the times, courage of constant updating and gritty willpower, and seize the commanding heights of key and core technologies. 

Take root in the earth and dedicate consciously. Practice the spirit of scientist, pursue rigorous scholarship, get involved wholeheartedly and strive to be makers of refreshing academic atmosphere and honest and clean work style. Work together to support growth of talented people of younger generations willingly. Proactively devote ourselves to volunteer service for science and technology, carry forward the scientific spirit, spread new scientific and technological knowledge, advocate scientific methods, help out on rural revitalization and write papers on the earth of the motherland. 

Face the world and pursue open cooperation. Deeply participate in the global science and technology governance, shape cultural ideas of using science and technology for greater good, and allow science and technology better enhance human wellbeing. Enhance openness, trust and cooperation to the international community of science and technology, and contribute wisdom and strength to construction of a human community with a shared future. 

The cause of independent innovation is promising, so are sci-tech workers. Let’s unite more closely around the CPC Central Committee centered on Xi Jinping, align all hearts and minds to the Party, pursue self reliance and work hard to make China a world power of science and technology and realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation!
