For the first time, the Symposium released the World's New Growth Cities Charm 
Index on Cultural Creativity report, which was commissioned by Nielsen, a 
world-renowned data and research company. The report takes six dimensions of 
city economic power, city consumption power, cultural soft power, innovative 
leading power, talent gathering power and international influence as its charm 
index on cultural creativity, and constructs an evaluation index system to 
measure the city culture and innovation development. According to the report, 
Chengdu is a city that combines culture and innovation and will become one of 
the fastest growing cities in the world in the next ten years.

At the scene of the Symposium, the "Tianfu Smart Media City Project" was 
officially launched to the world. It is reported that Tianfu Smart Media City 
is a world-class smart media industry cluster built in Chengdu by Chengdu Media 
Group, with the world leading Media City UK of Manchester and Dubai Media City 
as benchmarks. The project site has been confirmed as located in 
Singapore-Sichuan Hi-Tech Innovation Park and Chengdu High-tech Zone. It will 
be developed step-by-step in 3-5 years.

At the same time, a "Hand in Hand" campaign for museums is jointly launched at 
the Symposium by Rotterdam Museum in the Netherlands, Tate Modern in London, 
Dunhuang Academy China, Liangzhu Museum (Research Institute) and Wu Hou Shrine 
of Chengdu. The campaign aims to strengthen the exchanges and cooperation among 
international museums, build a community with a shared cultural future of 
various countries and promote global cultural prosperity.
