圳等您来,打开创新筑梦空间

Shenzhen Waits For You to Open Spaces for Innovations and Building Dreams

作为创新之城、设计之都、志愿者之城,也是圆梦之城的深圳。每年都吸引超过10万名毕业生,来深就业创业,寻找自我价值。深圳更大意义上是一座青年之城,不仅因为这个城市本身很年轻,更具备条件建设为一座青年发展型城市。未来深圳将努力稳步提高对青年的承载力、吸引力和凝聚力,提升青年对这座城市的认同感、参与感和贡献度,让城市对青年发展更友好,让青年对城市发展更有为。正逢改革开放40周年之际,大会为推动以人才兴产业,以产业聚人才,最终形成区域协调和城市永续发展而打下基础。

As a city famous for innovations, design, volunteers and making dreams come true, Shenzhen attracts more than 100,000 university graduates annually to work, start up their business and realize their self-values in the city. In a broad sense, Shenzhen is a city for youth, not only because it is a city with a short history but also it has the capacity to become one for better youth development. In the future, Shenzhen will spare no efforts to promote the sense of identity, sense of participation and contributions of young people for the city, make the city friendlier to them and make youth have better development in the city. This year marks the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up, and the conference will make a solid foundation for Shenzhen to form regional coordination and realize urban sustainable development by promoting industries with talents and gathering talents with prosperous industries.
