Huang Sanwen pointed out that tropical agriculture is an important part of China's agricultural cooperation and exchanges with Southeast Asia, Africa, Latin America and other countries, and is a national advantageous diplomatic resource. Tropical agriculture plays a very important role in global agriculture, bearing the important functions of ensuring supply, people's livelihood and ecology. The sustainable development of global tropical agriculture cannot be separated from the support of tropical agricultural science and technology. As the only national scientific research institution engaged in tropical agricultural science research in China, CATAS has accumulated a number of advanced technologies and excellent varieties, which have been popularized and applied in hot areas at home and abroad and achieved fruitful results.

He stressed that China's hot spots are small and the world's hot spots are large. The world's 53 million square kilometers of hot areas provide a huge space for the development of tropical agriculture and a broad platform for international cooperation in tropical agricultural science and technology. In the next step, the Chinese Academy of thermal sciences will continue to strengthen the coordination and cooperation with domestic and foreign agricultural science and education institutions and international organizations, build a number of overseas tropical agricultural science and technology centers and international joint laboratories, focus on key regions and key industries, launch the large scientific plan for international cooperation in tropical agriculture in a timely manner, actively build a global tropical agricultural science and technology innovation alliance Contribute to the wisdom and programs of the Chinese Academy of thermal sciences to achieve the sustainable development goals of the United Nations.

The successful holding of theWorld Tropical Agricultural Science Forum has established a global tropical agricultural science and technology exchange platform, promoted bilateral and multilateral cooperation in tropical agricultural science and technology, and provided a good opportunity for the global tropical agricultural science and technology to form a grand alliance and cooperation. Focusing on tropical agriculture, biological breeding, deep blue fishery, animal health and nutrition, the forum invited 13 well-known experts and scholars at home and abroad to make special reports.
