The Shenzhen-Zhongshan Link has passed construction acceptance, marking the successful completion of the world-class trans-sea cluster project after seven years of preparatory work and challenging construction, the Guangdong Transporation Group announced on Sunday.

The group held a meeting for the project acceptance in south China's Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province, from Saturday to Sunday, gathering over 150 representatives from the Highway Bureau of the Ministry of Transportation, the Department of Transport of Guangdong, and the Management Center of the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Link.

Sunday's meeting aimed at giving a comprehensive quality examination of the whole project with the completion and acceptance of each sub-project being carried out right after they were constructed.

After inspecting the link's critical construction sites and about four hours of reporting and discussion, the representatives finally approved the completion and acceptance of Shenzhen-Zhongshan Link.

The link, spanning about 24 kilometers, is scheduled to open late this month, after which driving from Shenzhen to Zhongshan takes only half an hour.

Chinese and American university students called for more exchanges and cooperation in sectors spanning culture, climate change and sci-tech innovation at a dialogue and cultural exchange event held on Thursday in Beijing.

The Zhi-Xing China: U.S.-China Youth Leaders Dialogue was held on Thursday in the Chinese capital, inviting more than 200 students from nearly 50 universities in China and the United States.

At the event, young people from the two countries held heated discussions on topics such as youth exchanges, climate change and sci-tech innovation, deepening mutual understanding through the collision of ideas.

During the event, the students also exchanged their ping-pong skills, a sport that helped the two countries mend ties after a period of estrangement.

At the cultural experience area, U.S. students tried facial makeup painting and Chinese folk instrument playing. Immersion into Chinese culture even extended into experiences with the cutting-edge 3D printing, a technology China helps to advance.

One young man discovered a newfound love for the unique performance style of Peking Opera, the most prevalent form of Chinese opera.

"I'm pretending like I'm on a horse. This is super fun. Chinese culture is amazing," said Cade Clayton, a student from the University of Chicago.

"I've always loved China and what I knew about China, and now that I know more about China I only love it more. [I have] a kind of continual hope to come back to China, see more of it. I would love to go to Tibet (Xizang), to Chongqing, to Shanghai to experience all of the different aspects of China and get a more full understanding of China and its people. I think continued exchanges like that can really bring people together, and I think that was the most important - bringing people together and connecting them," said Noah, a student from the University of Minnesota.

The group of American students attended colorful exchange events in various Chinese cities such as Beijing and Shanghai as well as the province of Shaanxi over the past two weeks.
