Many Party and state leaders such as Wu Bangguo and Zhu Rongji visited the CHTF venue for inspection; on the 10th anniversary of the CHTF in 2008, the then Premier Wen Jiabao wrote inscription for CHTF. The expectations of the Party and the state, and the support of the sponsoring ministries and commissions guarantee the success of CHTF. In the 16th CHTF in 2014, the then Vice Premier Liu Yandong visited CHTF and inspected the Smart City Exhibition first.
