A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Monday encouraged young overseas Chinese scholars to return to China to create businesses and contribute to the country's modernization.

Li Yuanchao, head of the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks at the 13th Convention of Overseas Chinese Scholars in Science and Technology which opened Monday in the southern city of Guangzhou.

"Overseas Chinese talents are a special resource for our country's modernization construction, and youth are the most innovative, creative and productive," Li said, adding that full support and trust will be given to their work in the country.

Li urged these overseas scholars to help China boost its innovative capabilities in science and technology and accelerate the reform of the country's science and research system.

Figures show that more than 20,000 overseas talents have attended the conventions to seek job opportunities in the country since the event was founded in 1998.

This year, some 1,300 Chinese scholars from overseas were in attendance.
