More than 6,000 science, technology workers, as well as scientist-turned-entrepreneurs on Saturday started to sit together and discuss issues such as energy saving and environmental protection.

Among them were more than 100 members from Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), the highest palaces for scientific research achievements and engineering progress.

While addressing opening of the annual conference of China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) here in Wuhan, the most important industrial city in central China, CAST Chairman Han Qide said resource and environmental factors had become two prominent problems hampering social and economic development in China.

"Scientific and technological achievements are fundamental ways to advance adjustment of industrial structure and break through the bottleneck caused by resource and environment," said Han.

He hoped scientific and technological workers would discuss and find out efficient ways for promoting a harmony of the society, and construction of resource efficient and environment-friendly society at the seven-day conference.

This year's CAST conference, heralded as congress for science and technology community, features a theme of "Energy Saving and Environmental Protection, Harmonious Development". It is the eighth of the kind ever held since 1999.

During this year's science and technology congress, participants attend a host of academic exchange activities, 96 events for popularization of science and technology, alongside with 12 seminars.

Also present at Saturday's opening ceremony were scietific celebrities such as Zhou Guangzhao, CAST honorary chairman, Minister of Science and Technology Wan Gang, and Nobel Prize laureate in physics Chen-Ning Yang
