The Taihu Talent Summit 2020 kicked off in Wuxi, East China's Jiangsu province, on Aug 5, gathering officials, experts and renowned entrepreneurs to explore industry development and showcase the talent-friendly environment in Wuxi.
The event, known for three years as the Wuxi Conference of Talent and Innovation, has been renamed the Wuxi Taihu Talent Summit in an attempt to boost its 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.
