I advise all the students not to forget who you are and where you come from. The culture and history of the homeland are valuable things that you need to remember and develop more and more. Always try your hardest, believe in yourself, share your ideas with your family, take a notebook with you when traveling and record valuable lessons that you have learned. You need to learn how to focus on work, think carefully before answering, and the most important thing is accept failure, which may lead to success later.”

After the Opening session, the delegates were divided into 3 subcommittees participating in the intensive discussion. Each Subcommittee had the academic activities in one private space, with specialized topics which were suitable for the nature of each training sector. The students were also eager to participate in large numbers so as to listen to experts presenting their speeches and those students could ask many questions about learning.
