First, we need to lay emphasis on the construction of carriers for innovation. Under this requirement, we should promote the construction of Mianyang Science and Technology City and Tianfu New Area Science City, keep striving for the settlement of national major science and technology infrastructure in Sichuan, and continuously improve the province's ability in scientific and technological innovation. Second, we should attach importance to industrial technology innovation and focus on key industrial projects in our province to promote technological breakthroughs in major industries and realize commercial transformation of scientific and technological innovation achievements, and achieve key breakthroughs, so as to strengthen scientific and technological support for industrial development in Sichuan Province. Third, we need to carry out reform of the science and technology system, deepen the reform of the mixed ownership system for the ownership of scientific and technological achievements that are made by individuals holding positions in the agencies, accelerate the establishment of the evaluation system for science and technology, optimize the evaluation mechanism for scientific and technological projects, and improve the evaluation method for scientific and technological talents, aiming to further stimulate the innovation and creativity of the whole society.

Yin Li also stressed that the implementation of 14th Five-year Plan and mid-term and long-term scientific and technological innovation is crucial to the future development of Sichuan. And it is necessary to focus on the new round of scientific and technological revolution and the strategic direction of industrial transformation in the world.
