The 2018 Xiamen Taiwan Teenagers Camp took place in the city on the coast of the Chinese mainland on July 14 with the aim of reinforcing the understanding of traditional Chinese culture.
A total of 332 teenagers took part in the summer camp, 192 of whom were from Taiwan.
During the seven-day event, these cross-Straits campers toured Xiamen and Jinmen in Taiwan to experience special local customs, practice martial arts and admire cultural heritages.
Organized by the Xiamen Youth Federation, the Scout Association of Taipei and the Scout Association of Jinmen, the cross-Straits camp has run for the past three years.
Xiamen recently donated 105 books to its sister city in the Philippines, Cebu, to celebrate Cebu-Xiamen Friends Day which falls on Oct 26.
Elod Tasnady, consulate general of Hungary in Shanghai, visited Xiamen, Fujian province from Sept 25 to 26 to seek business cooperation with the Chinese city.
