China has made tremendous progress in the past two decades, and Shandong province, as a national economic heavyweight and one of the cradles of Chinese civilization, still has significance to Chinese culture and even world culture, according to recent remarks by Tim Hunt, Nobel Prize winner and emeritus professor at University College London.
He also noted that Shandong still has some basic problems to be solved. In addition to ensuring clean water and adequate food accessible to its entire people, the province should focus on the disastrous consequences on climate and biodiversity of continuous development of non-renewable energy. To solve these problems, more scientific technologies and innovations are needed.
The spread of new information technologies raises issues such as ethics, privacy, and security. He believes that many countries are faced with such concerns due to rapid economic development, and therefore constructive policy discussions are required between scientists, policy makers, businesses and consumers to help deal with challenges facing society today and in the future.
