Welcome Letter


Mayor of Beijing


On behalf of the Municipal Government and the citizens of Beijing, it is my privilege to invite you to Beijing to participate in the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2002.

Each year, a number of large-sized international academic conferences are held in our city. However, the forthcoming ICM2002 is of special importance to us because it is dedicated to a basic and essential field of human knowledge of which unprecedented development was achieved in the 20th century and because it is the first ICM to be held in a developing country. The Government of Beijing Municipality, together with the educational and research institutions in Beijing, will make every effort to ensure a rewarding and successful ICM2002.

Beijing is an ancient yet modern city. This fast changing city has retained colorful and harmonious mixture of ancient and modern civilizations. It has many wonderful cultural opportunities for you to discover and to enjoy. Dear friends, please take the time to come to explore the future of mathematics, to contribute your knowledge, to renew acquaintances, to make new friends, and to enjoy our hospitality. The Great Wall is waving to you!

Liu Qi

Mayor of Beijing
