The event began with a discussion on new quality productive forces between international students, young Chinese people, and businesses representatives. Following the discussion, international students adorned in traditional Chinese attire took to the stage, presenting an Indonesian dance called We Are Beautiful and a Chinese folk song, Jasmine Flower.

The second part of the event involved hands-on activities featuring Chinese intangible cultural heritage projects. Students from Indonesia, Laos, Pakistan, and other countries tried their hand at traditional Chinese arts such as sugar painting, dough figurines, paper-cutting, tie-dyeing, and Yueju Opera.
