At the conference, the International Science and Technology Cooperation Initiative was announced, aiming to foster a cooperative international community in science and technology. This initiative emphasizes the importance of respect for scientific advancement, openness, collaboration, equality, inclusivity, and mutually beneficial outcomes.

Additionally, the conference marked the beginning of a targeted program under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) focusing on science, technology, and innovation. This program introduces four main action areas: technologies for sustainable development, support for innovation and entrepreneurship, space information technology, and the utilization of science and technology to combat poverty.

In other developments, the unique strengths of the Chengdu-Chongqing area were fully leveraged, pushing forward eight major tasks, including resource sharing, talent exchanges, and platform buildings.

The next BRST is scheduled to take place in 2025 in China's Sichuan Province.
