The State Council issued a plan in 2017 that set benchmarks for China’s AI sector, with the value of core AI indu

stries predicted to exceed 1 trillion yuan ($145 billion) and make the country the global leader of AI innovation by 2030.

In December, Tianjin unveiled a three-year plan to boost the innovative development of seven AI-related indust

rial chains including independent and controllable information systems, smart security, big data, advanced co

mmunications, intelligent connected vehicles, industrial robots and intelligent terminals.

According to the plan, the government will build Tianjin into an AI in

novation center and a hub of AI industries and innovative applications by 2020.

Xi’s words carry great weight, and I am sure the w

China is ready to work with other countries to build a better community with a shared future for mankind.

In the face of environmental challenges, all countries are in a commu

nity with interlinked destinies, and no country is immune from the challenges.

These statements by President Xi really impressed me as they’re very much relevan

t to my country, Bangladesh, which is one of the most vulnerable to the impact of climate change.

Since the Chinese president announced his country’s readiness t

o work with other countries facing environmental chall

enges, I am really optimistic that my country will benefit by forging cooperation with China in this area.

Xi’s call for joint efforts with other nations to address su

ch global problems as climate change and marine pollution has raised my hopes high.
