A new declaration has been made by leading global young entrepreneurs, calling for stronger actions to boost cooperation in the digital economy to support sustainable development and reduce the digital divide for emerging economies and developing countries. The International Cooperation for Young Entrepreneurs was made at the International Cooperation and Development Conference for Young Entrepreneurs, a conference held by China International Youth Exchange Center on Tuesday.
The declaration aims to promote technological exchange and cooperation in cutting-edge fields such as artificial intelligence, biopharmaceuticals, and quantum information. It also called on young entrepreneurs across nations to share the outcomes of cooperation, enhance the high-quality development of the Belt and Road Initiative, optimize the global industrial layout, and maintain the stability and security of the global industrial and supply chains.
Moreover, the new declaration highlights the crucial role young entrepreneurs have played in promoting the global division of labor and cooperation, driving economic growth, pushing technological innovation, and stimulating social progress. To support the advancement of young entrepreneurs through technological exchange, personnel training, strategic consulting, business startup, and incubation, the International Alliance of Young Entrepreneurs Associations was established.
Faced with climate change, the declaration also calls on young entrepreneurs from all countries to relieve climate change problems and reduce emissions, adopt a sustainable development model that is resilient to climate change, prioritize scientific and technological research and development, and embrace energy-saving and decarbonizing technologies. The organization is ready to forge long-term communication mechanisms with governments and think tanks from all countries, to offer young entrepreneurs more business, investment, and growth opportunities.
Overall, the International Cooperation for Young Entrepreneurs aims to bridge the digital divide, achieve carbon neutrality, ensure food security, promote inclusive trade and investment, infrastructure construction, and industrialization to support sustainable development and global economic recovery in the post-pandemic era.
