Professor Conti reminded all in attendance that as the official journal of the GW-ICC, CVIA is the first English language journal published from China to disseminate Chinese cardiovascular clinical research.

As CVIA develops, the journal has recently added new Editorial Board members including ESC Chairman, Professor Jeroen J. Bax. CVIA publishes quarterly since its launch in 2015, and has published 7 special issues since then covering topics such as heart failure and electrophysiology. CVIA is currently preparing special issues on subjects such as heart valve disease, anticoagulation/antiplatelet therapy, adult congenital heart disease, female heart disease, Stable ischemic heart disease and other topics of emerging research interest. Professor Conti stressed that, first and foremost, CVIA focuses on clinical applications.

Professor Conti reiterated the need for the strong support of the Chinese members of the editorial board, including article submissions, article reviewing, increasing readership/raising awareness of the journal, and strengthening links with various Chinese heart disease associations.
