Mayor of Beijing


Mathematics is the gate and key of the sciences. Mathematics is the basis of high technologies. Mathematics is a symbol of civilization.

It is our city's great honor to be able to host the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2002, which will be dedicated to the advancement of such an essential field of human knowledge at such a crucial moment of the new century.

"We are only overjoyed to receive friends from afar." No words other than those of Confucius, the ancient Chinese philosopher, could better express our feeling in anticipation of the guests of ICM2002. I cordially invite you, on behalf of the citizens and the Government of Beijing Municipality, to come in harmonic cooperation to open a new era of Mathematics.

Beijing, a city interweaving historical tradition with modern fascination, is waiting for you!


Jia Qinglin

Mayor of Beijing
