  With the theme of “modern agriculture”, this winter camp was held for the first time by the Silk Road Alliance. The activities include special report, tea art performance, seal cutting experience, Chinese lessons, and calligraphy lessons. The winter camp students visited the National Key Laboratory, College of Enology, Museum Garden, Promotion Exhibition Hall, Kiwi Base, Yangling Agricultural Science and Technology Demonstration Park, Science and Technology Innovation Center, etc., and went to the ancient city of Xi'an to understand the profound historical and cultural heritage of the Chinese nation. The winter camp greatly stimulated the enthusiasm of students to learn Chinese and study in China, and expanded the international influence of the Silk Road alliance.
