Zhong Yechang, Secretary of the Party Group and Chairman of Hainan Federation of Humanities and Social Sciences Circles, and President of Hainan Academy of Social Sciences, said that talent construction was of great importance to the development of the think tank.

Professor Du Minge, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee of Hainan University, and Secretary of the Party Committee for Discipline Inspection of Hainan University, noted that, think tanks affiliated to universities serve as important knowledge output units, and think tank construction should make innovations on the reform of scientific and technological research, building of talent teams, marketing of achievements, and the establishment of bases. NISCSS Vice President Xi Jinsong first briefed the basic situation of NISCSS and then pointed out that as a think tank focusing on the issues concerning the South China Sea, NISCSS has made a great deal of research on such fields as talent training, think tank professionalization, and brand building.
