Co-hosted by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council and the Tianjin government, the conference attracted 83 countries and regions and 232 foreign and Chinese overseas groups and resulted in the signing of 198 cooperation agreements with a total value of 17.2 billion yuan ($2.53 billion). Signed agreements included 107 overseas high level talents introduction projects, 38 scientific and technological innovation projects, 3 media cooperation projects and 50 investment trade projects.

The conference attracted many overseas and domestic high level talents, especially professors and experts. Gao Wei, an academician of the Royal Society of New Zealand and the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand said, "New Zealand is a small country, so a lot of mature projects cannot be promoted here, but they have a bright future in China. In recent years, high speed rail and numerically-controlled machine tools have become famous abroad. Although I live in New Zealand, I always care about the development of China; I want to contribute to my country."
