GTCOM Vice President Elena Zhang delivered the work report on behalf of the Secretariat of the LBDA. She reviewed the development of the LBDA and looked forward to the future development direction. Since the launch of the LBDA in 2016, "resource sharing within the alliance and accelerating the internationalization process" has been the focus of development. Over the past three years, the LBDA has continued to promote the sharing of resources around the world, and has organized and implemented more than 100 cooperation projects, undertaken major national projects such as the SCO Qingdao Summit and CNKEYWORDS. Hundreds of universities and thousands of teachers and students have participated in the practical activities of the alliance. Together with numerous domestic and foreign universities and institutions, the LBDA has established big-data laboratories for various industries, which is also a classic case of resource sharing within the alliance. In terms of accelerating the process of internationalization, theme activities have been held in Russia, Britain, Australia and other countries to focus on LBDA development, resource sharing and promotion of the internationalization process. As it looks to the future, the LBDA will work harder to achieve comprehensive sharing, expand cooperation, optimize organization and extend its talents to the world so as to realize the great development of the alliance and raise the industry standard.
