Mr. Zhao Lingshan, Secretary-General of CEAIE, attended the ceremony and talked cordially with the fellows and guests, welcoming the fellows to China and appreciating for the supporting from the guests. Officials and representatives from Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Budget and Work Committee of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, Ministry of Science and Technology and All-China Women Federation also attended the ceremony.

In the next four weeks, Zhi-Xing China fellows will attend seminars in Beijing and visit Ministry of Education, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Perfect World. They will start their individually-tailored visits to 4-6 cities across China afterwards. In the last week of program, they will get together in Shanghai to attend the closing ceremony.

As an important outcome and an exemplary program of the 5th round of China-U.S. High-Level Consultation on People to People Exchange, Zhi-Xing China Fellowships was launched on December 17th, 2014. The Program provides valuable opportunities for the fellows to communicate with Chinese people from all walks of life and obtain a comprehensive understanding of China. It also helps the fellows gain industry-specific insights, network and make friends with their Chinese counterparts. Hope the fellows to become great force in facilitating greater understanding and friendship between youths from two countries and making contributions to the improvement of the bilateral relations.
