Through recommendations and selection, a total of 25 representatives from well-known incubators in the ten ASEAN countries and winners of the "China-ASEAN Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition" were selected to participate in the training camp. An online platform has been established for ASEAN participants, along with core courses, mentor-ship mechanisms, open training bases, expanded cooperation partnerships, and cooperative project connections. Preliminary online exchanges and discussions have been conducted with the participants. During the 7-day Innovation Journey in China, the ASEAN participants will visit Kunming and Shanghai.
