The annual "Taiwan & Ningbo College Students Summer Camp" officially kicked off on Monday. Hu Jianyue, Vice Chairman of Ningbo People's Political Consultative Conference, and Zhang Dongmei, chairman of the Taipei Clansmen Society of Ningbo, participated in the opening ceremony and delivered speeches.

The exchange program is jointly organized by Ningbo and Taipei. As the longest organized student exchange program across the Strait, the summer camp has been held 18 times since 1993.

The organizers said the summer camp this year has attracted more than 50 college students from 20 colleges and universities in Taiwan.

The camp will last to the end of this month. In the upcoming week, the visiting Taiwan students will tour the Hemudu ruins in Yuyao, the former residence of Wang Yangming(one of the most influential philosophers in the Confucian tradition), Xikou Town(the hometown of Chiang Kai-shek), and Hangzhou Bay Bridge. Besides, they will attend a series of exchange activities with students from local universities like Ningbo University, Ningbo City College of Vocational Technology, and Zhejiang Wanli College.

According to the organizers, more than 100 college students across the straits participated in the opening ceremony.
