The delegation toured the Dujiangyan Irrigation Project. The irrigation system began in 3rd century B.C. and continues to work today, leading it to be named a UNESCO World Heritage site for its innovative design and role in the advances of ancient China.

School visits to Dujiangyan schools took place in the afternoon. First was Dujiangyan Vocational School. Vocational education has three levels: junior secondary, senior secondary, and tertiary. More than 11 million students attend these schools each year, helping China produce a skilled workforce.

The students at Teziba Middle School invited delegation members to join them for their school exercises, showing great patience in teaching their movements to the guests!
