On July 28, 2016, General Secretary Xi Jinping in the 40th anniversary of Tangshan earthquake relief and new construction came to Tangshan in Hebei Province and conduct investigations and studies on the implementation of the Thirteenth Five-Year plan, promotion of economic and social development, and strengthening of disaster prevention and relief capacity building. On August 2, 2016, China Overseas-Educated Scholars Development Foundation organized and convene a symposium to study and implement the "Investigation of Xi Jinping in Tangshan: All-Round Improvement of Comprehensive Ability of National Disaster Prevention and Reduction" .
General Director Ma Wenpu and General Secretary Zhuang Liang of China Overseas-Educated Scholars Development Foundation, national earthquake prediction experts Geng Qingguo, Qiang Zuji and Chen Weisheng of China Overseas-Educated Scholars Development Foundation Catastrophic Disaster Chains Prediction Center undertook in-depth discussion. The participants in the symposium first watched and studied the "Investigation of Xi Jinping in Tangshan: All-Round Improvement of Comprehensive Ability of National Disaster Prevention and Reduction" movie. Secretary-General Zhuang Liang conveyed the speech spirits of the "Investigation of Xi Jinping in Tangshan: All-Round Improvement of Comprehensive Ability of National Disaster Prevention and Reduction" in which Xi Jinping pointed out that since the founding of New China, especially since the reform and opening up, we had been continuing to explore, establishing the working policy of combination prevention with rescue with prevention in the first place. That made the national comprehensive disaster prevention and relief capability overall improved. We should learn from the experience, further enhance the sense of responsibility and awareness of unexpected development, adhere to the working policy of combination prevention with rescue with prevention in the first place and adhere to normal disaster prevention and abnormal disaster relief. We should strive to achieve transition from focus on post-disaster relief to focus on pre-disaster prevention, from response to single disaster to that of integrated disaster reduction, and from disaster risk reduction to reduction of disaster losses, enhancing the whole society to withstand and prevent natural disasters.
mid-term information prediction, strong Geomagnetic storm combination method, infrasound, Kp index, satellite infrared thermal field and other earthquake prediction means and methods. They can independently predict earthquake with a variety of comprehensive prediction method, and has successfully developed the world's leading monitoring equipment. They have made breakthroughs in improving the relevance, the formation mechanism of the earthquake, observation method, forecasting theory and methods, especially in the short and imminent earthquake prediction, accuracy of patent achievements, and technology which had been verified in practice. They made relatively accurate prediction on MS 6.5 earthquake in Zhaotong Ludian, Yunnan, MS 7.3 earthquake in Kumamoto, Japan , MS 8.5 earthquake in Tokyo, Japan, MS 7.8 earthquake in Hindu Kush, Afghan , MS 7.4 earthquake in Tajikistan, MS 7.9 earthquake in Rat Islands, Alaska, USA occurred in recent years.


The experts of China Overseas- Educated Scholars Development Foundation Catastrophic Disaster Chains Prediction Center are mostly old people. They have contributed their whole life to the earthquake prediction cause of the country. At the event, Researcher Geng Qingguo passionately stated: I am a witness of the Tangshan earthquake, and scientific worker on the first line of disaster prediction. General Secretary expressed the aspirations of researchers engaged in earthquake prediction, gave particular and overall instructions on disaster prevention disaster, mitigation and relief. All this put forward clearer objectives for our future works.
Researcher Qiang Zuji arrived in Tangshan within 2 days the earthquake took place on behalf of the Seismological Bureau. He said that forty years of experience on earthquake prediction allowed him more convinced that China would definitely make breakthrough in earthquake prediction, Chinese people’s goal is to make "accurate forecast " on imminent earthquake prediction. General Secretary Xi's speech gave greatly encouraged the researchers.
Associate Professor Chen Weisheng in the forum said: "To combine prevention with rescue with prevention in the first place" was repeatedly called for by experts, it is involved in the important speech of General Secretary, which inspired me.

To struggle with the natural disasters is the eternal subject of human survival and development, which requires us to move on with our initial determination. China Overseas-Educated Scholars Development Foundation responded positively to national policies on disaster prevention and disaster relief, focusing on research and prediction on earthquake prevention, and disaster mitigation. The association has also set up China Overseas-Educated Scholars Development Foundation Catastrophic Disaster Chains Prediction Center in 2013 devoted to promoting the research and development of natural disasters forecasting. With three years of efforts, the center has collected a team of well-known earthquake prediction research experts with Geng Qingguo, Qiang Zuji, Qian Fuye, Chen Weisheng, Zeng Xiaoping, Wang Wenxiang and Lin Yunfang as the focus. These experts have achievements in drought and earthquake relations, strong earthquakes commensurability
