The 3th World Science and Technology Development Forum concluded on November 7th in Beijing. This two-day forum, focusing on “openness, trust, and cooperation”, was held both online and offline and mainly organized by the China Association for Science and Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the Chinese Academy of Engineering.


At the closing ceremony in the afternoon of November 7th, the Ten Scientific Issues Concerning Human Social Development (TSICHSD) was published by hosts of the forum. These ten questions are all related to seventeen items of Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development made by UN, centering on the most urgent, basic, and challenging demands and covering three areas including ecology, medical treatment, and information.

Since CBCGDF’s delegates were invited to this forum, Convergence Media of CBCGDF have sorted relevant data and decided to share these ten questions with our readers.
