Professor Shahbaz Khan reviewed the research reports and dissemination publications of the ICCSD and fully affirmed the effectiveness of ICCSD work. He said that as an interdisciplinary institution, the ICCSD has performed its functions very well and achieved good results. Culture and art play a very important role in the development of today's society, and the special issue of "Creativity 2030" produced by the ICCSD contains a large number of domestic and international creative cases, which deeply explains the very important topic of "sustainable development". The work done by the ICCSD has enhanced people's understanding of creativity and sustainable development, as well as the international community's awareness of China's 14th Five-Year Plan.

Both sides look forward to the next strategic cooperation, and the ICCSD will do its best to assist UNESCO Beijing Cluster Office in promoting policies related to "sustainable development", facilitating the integration of creativity and cultural heritage, conducting inter-governmental cultural dialogue, and actively implementing relevant creative projects.
