Guan Qiang noted in his speech that young people are explorers of museums' innovation and development, inheritors of new forces in scientific research and skills, and speakers for museums in response to social concerns. Facing the future, young people should be firm in their ideas and convictions, think diligently and take solid action, and stick to the objective values of museums in a changing environment. Additionally, they should learn from other's strong points, forge ahead, and promote the high-quality development of museums in the process of reform and innovation as well as aim high and endeavor to realize the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation and highlight the cultural power of museums for social development.

Those included the protection of collections, exhibition planning, education and communication, archaeological research, and exchange and mutual learning. They passionately displayed their new ideas, concepts, practices, and achievements regarding the contemporary and outstanding insights into museums as young individuals.
