Chen Xiaohong, Secretary of the CPC HUTB Committee, Director of Xiangjiang Laboratory, and CAE Academician, delivered a speech. She pointed out that culture is the soul of a country and a nation, and science and technology are the primary productive forces. The integration of culture and technology is an important task that is crucial for overall development and long-term growth. It not only responds to the objective needs of the country and the expectations of Hunan Province but also demonstrates the subjective initiative that showcases the wisdom and energy of HUTB. She discussed her understanding of promoting the integrated development of culture and technology from three aspects. First, promoting the integrated development of culture and technology development is a glorious mission bestowed by the times. Second, promoting the integrated development of culture and technology is a reliable path to achieving high-quality development of the university. Finally, promoting the integrated development of culture and technology is already necessary and inevitable.

Secretary Chen Xiaohong put forward four hopes and requirements for how the university can better promote the Integrated Development of Culture and Technology Themed Education Season. First, it is necessary to enhance political awareness and deepen ideological understanding. We should stand at the height of the development of the Party and the country, bear in mind the State's interests, the grand plan of the province, and the major affairs of the university, further enhance our overall consciousness, demonstrate our sense of responsibility, and contribute to the high-quality development of the university by devoting ourselves with enthusiasm and gathering tremendous strength. Second, we must adhere to a goal-oriented approach and clarify the key areas of work. We should promote the deep and solid development of the integration of culture and technology, fully adapt to the development trend of "artificial intelligence+", effectively deepen interdisciplinary integration, and truly empower development through culture and guide the future through technology. Third, we must cultivate development momentum and empower the central task. We should integrate this themed education season with the mission of fostering morality and cultivating talents, as well as the work theme of "increasing initiative, seeking transformation, strengthening connotation, and promoting rapid advancement" to provide strong support for achieving the strategic goals of "Three Advances and Three Highs." Fourth, we must summarize our experience and practices and create an activity brand. We should mobilize comprehensively, promote widely, adapt to new requirements, apply new methods, and explore new paths. We should summarize, promote, and advance simultaneously to create a HUTB brand effect that promotes the integrated development of culture and technology.

Secretary Chen Xiaohong extended her sincere wishes for the successful completion of this themed education season and solemnly announced "The launch of the HUTB 2024 Integrated Development of Culture and Technology Themed Education Season!"
