"The spirit of science is also the spirit of questioning and verifying," Zhang says.

In 2016, a plan issued by the State Council set a goal that by 2020, science literacy levels of Chinese people should exceed 10 percent.

At the 2019 World Conference on Science Literacy held on Oct 16-17 in Beijing, Huai Jinpeng, executive vice-president of the China Association for Science and Technology, and a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that, in the past two decades, China has lifted science literacy levels from 0.2 percent in 1992 to 8.47 percent in 2018.

He gave a speech focusing on the importance of science literacy from three dimensions: science literacy for sustainable development, technology for the people and deepening cooperation on science literacy promotion.

Huai says that, as the largest organization for scientific and technical workers, which includes 91 million scientific and technical workers in all fields such as scientific research, industries, commerce and other sectors, the China Association for Science and Technology is the main force pushing the development of science literacy in China.
