This will help to further enhance the communication, contacts and in-depth friendly cooperation between developing countries in the field of accounting.

The representatives of the two colleges took the stage to speak in turn, expressing their gratitude to China and all participating organizers. They said that this was a time they would never forget. They will always remember the majesty of the Great Wall, the history of the Forbidden City, the modernity of Shanghai and the antiques of Jingdezhen ceramics. It was a wonderful time for them.
During the training, students actively took part in various seminars and exchanges activities, and actively cooperated with the Chinese management personnel to do all kinds of work, especially during the process of field trip. The trainees and the Chinese managers helped each other and worked together. And they spent the traditional Chinese festival---the Mid-Autumn Festival in Shanghai. They are as close as brothers and sisters and have overcome various difficulties together, forming a profound friendship.
At the closing ceremony, the students applauded and spoke out "China" loudly from time to time to express their gratitude to China for the organizing party who provided the trip. The smile filled the faces of everyone in the venue, and the atmosphere was warmer than the festival.

During the 21-day training event, the seminar took a combination of subject presentations, discussion and visits and reviewed the current macroeconomic situation in China, helping students to learn about China's economic system reform experience. The participants went to the financial and economic management departments, domestic and foreign-funded enterprises and industrial parks in Beijing, Shanghai, Nanchang, Jingdezhen and other places to conduct on-the-spot investigations, which deepened their understanding of current economic situation, fiscal policy and business environment in China, and improved their ability to apply relevant economic theory analysis and solve practical problems. The trainees not only experienced the beauty of Chinese natural scenery and the charm of traditional culture, but also felt the hospitality of the Chinese people. They also witnessed the tremendous changes that have taken place since China's reform and opening up. This training will definitely become students’ valuable wealth and an unforgettable journey.
