On June 8, Bai Chunli, President of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and Sergeev Alexander Mikhailovich, head of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), signed an agreement on scientific cooperation between the two academies. The document was witnessed by Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

According to the agreement, both sides will further strengthen cooperation in physics and astrophysics, chemical and biological sciences, nanotechnology, human science, medical science and agriculture. Additionally, the two parties will cooperate in scientific and technical personnel and information exchange, scientific research and symposiums.

RAS, restructured in 2013, is the largest basic research center in Russia and is dedicated to research in the fields of science, technology, culture and society. CAS and RAS resumed their cooperation in 1985 and have signed a number of cooperative agreements. This was Sergeev’s first visit to China for the purpose of signing a new agreement since he took office in 2017.
