The event, which was known as the Wuxi Conference of Talent and Innovation for three years, has been renamed the Wuxi Taihu Talent Summit in an attempt to boost the event’s influence. At the summit, prominent individuals and teams listed in this year’s Taihu Talent Project were each granted a considerable amount of prize money.

The Wuxi government has always seen human resources as an essential resource to support development and a fundamental strength for any city. Serving as a communication platform, the event gathered the party secretaries of Wuxi’s six districts and two county-level cities, who took turns giving one-minute presentations to promote both the business and natural environment of their jurisdictions.
In addition, a school-enterprise cooperation alliance of internet of things and intelligent manufacturing was inaugurated and a group of key innovation platforms were launched.
