Shanghai Hosts Cross-Straits Geography ConferenceA geography seminar involving scientists from the mainland, Taiwan and Hong Kong opened Monday in Shanghai.
Jointly hosted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and East China Normal University, the three-day conference has attracted more than 300 attendees.
Sources with the organizing committee said that academic exchanges have grown increasingly extensive among geography circles from the mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Hong Kong initiated the conference for Chinese all around the world in April of 1990 and hosted the second seminar with the theme of "China and the World in the 21st Century". In 1999, the conference was in Taiwan.
The above activities have not only provided a chance for all Chinese geography researchers to communicate and exchange but have also promoted the cooperation between them wherever they are, according to the sources.
The theme of this year's seminar is "A Century of Chinese Geography: Fundamental Research and Education Development", at which attendees will discuss Chinese achievements in the field and future development.
