Chinese Premier Li Qiang will attend the opening ceremony of the 2024 World AI Conference and High-Level Meeting on Global AI Governance and deliver a speech on July 4 in Shanghai, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning announced Tuesday.

Noting that the World AI Conference has been held annually six times, Mao said the conference this year, with the theme "Governing AI for Good and for All," aims to establish international cooperation and exchange platforms featuring openness, inclusiveness and equal participation, advance global artificial intelligence governance and develop an open, fair and effective governance mechanism.

China advocates the principles of wide participation and consensus-based decision-making in global AI governance and promotes broad international consensus based on full respect for the differences in policies and practices of all countries, she said.

The Shanghai conference will bring together government officials and representatives of international organizations, industries, universities and research institutes, among others, according to the spokesperson.

"We look forward to the full exchange of insights in Shanghai in the spirit of extensive consultation and joint contribution for shared benefit, to build consensus and promote the healthy, safe and orderly development of AI," she added.
