Li congratulated the foreign experts for winning the award. He said that foreign experts have been helping China introduce advanced technology and management experience, and have played a unique role in cultural and personal exchanges. Some foreign experts were working in remote areas in middle and western China, some took part in major engineering projects, and others worked in education and medical fields.

China has launched a more open and inclusive policy for foreign experts. China will provide a fair legal environment for foreign intellectuals. The application for “Green cards” will be streamlined, and two certificates for foreign workers will be combined into one. Foreign talents are encouraged to apply for national research programs and their intellectual property rights will be protected.
