The event made full use of Guangxi's geographical advantages, strengthening exchanges with ASEAN countries and Hong Kong-Macao area in the fields of science popularization, academics, think tanks, talent and more, and at the same time enhancing ties with the mainland for youngsters in the Hong Kong-Macao area. In the future, Guangxi will gradually establish a long-term win-win cooperation mechanism with youth science and technology education organizations of ASEAN countries, so as to promote the vigorous development of youth education with ASEAN countries, and build Guangxi into a "golden zone" of youth science and technology education in ASEAN countries.

The outstanding teams from each project group will be recommended to form a delegation to participate in the 20th China Adolescent Robotics Competition to be held in Langfang, Hebei province, in August this year.
