Academy head Yin Xiaodong said in his speech the academy aims to develop itself into "a center of traditional Chinese opera talent cultivation, opera theory research, opera inheritance and innovation, and international theater exchange and cooperation".

In the panel discussions, more than 10 scholars exchanged their views on four topics: "theories and policies", "schools and theaters", "teaching and practicing" and "views from other fields".
