In addition, they also provided suggestions and improvement measures for other project plans from various countries and regions, which received praise from various parties.

Gong Wenzhu, the leader of the Youth Delegation of the Green Light Year, told reporters that the performance of the three Suzhou students surprised her very much.

I also look forward to more opportunities to share ideas with more peers and learn and discuss about issues related to food and agriculture.” As a Grade 3 student majoring in international relations, Xu Yixiang faced many problems about future career planning and employment development. He also gained a clearer direction for future planning during this precious experience.
