Finally, the chairman of the South African Local Government Association, Ms. Tambi Nkadimon, delivered a speech as the representative of the trainees. Ms. Enkadimon said that we did not waste the two-week training program. The training involved a number of topics that the South African government paid high attention to: green economy, climate change, emphasis on the power of young people, and human resource construction. These areas require us to start from the bottom up to ensure that our people can become a part of economic construction and contribute to development instead of passively waiting for employment. Ms. Enka Dimon is looking forward to going to China to participate in research and training, and hopes that there will be new members of parliament participating in future research and training activities.
