The book could give unlimited hope and warm expectations for young people in the new era and realize the heavy weight of the cause of education, talent cultivation, and the growth of students in the leader's heart to inspire and encourage college students to study diligently, to love study, to read books, and to strive to grow up to be a pillar of talent.

Mr. WU Guilong proposed three initiatives for participating teachers and students, to realize the wisdom of leaders and build up lofty ideals in reading and sharing, to build bridges of friendship and tell China’s story, and to enhance their own skills and applicate knowledge.

The book-sharing event, characterized by its rich content and innovative approaches, covered four dimensions: knowledge, emotions, attitudes, and actions. It was structured around three main themes—self-cultivation, striving, and ideals—threaded throughout the event. Through a variety of formats, such as exhibitions of reading activity outcomes, personal experiences, dramatic presentations, and interviews with notable figures, the event constituted a distinctive "Chinese Context Education Classroom." It held significant educational value for both domestic and international students, offering them an opportunity to deepen their understanding and practical application of President XI's Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era. The aim is to cultivate a new generation of youth who are idealistic, responsible, resilient, and ready to strive in the new era. USTB will continue to implement the spirit of President XI's important reply, fostering more international talents who are knowledgeable about China. Together with young students from China and abroad, the university aims to contribute the wisdom and strength of USTB to the cause of international education in China.
