At the closing ceremony, teachers and students at the scene first reviewed the wonderful moments of the week through short video. Over the past five days, more than 50 teachers and students from seven colleges and universities across the Taiwan Strait have jointly participated in a variety of activities, such as navigation culture lecture, navigation culture line, charming Nanjing line, navigation skill show, quality development training, etc., and jointly felt the charm of navigation skills and knowledge and traditional culture, forming a deep friendship in cooperation and sharing.

Their enthusiasm and thoughtfulness left a deep and good impression on the teachers and students.
Subsequently, young teachers and students from both sides of the Straits jointly brought wonderful and colorful performances.

I hope we can work together to carry forward and develop the spirit of maritime culture.
