After watching the videos and performance, he thanked the teachers, students, executives of Newtown School Kolkata as well as the parents for their wonderful work to receive the visiting Chinese group, and congratulated the two schools on the success of their exchanges. He went on to say that the exchanges are useful for enhancing the learning, and enriching the experiences, of the students and teachers, and help the schools better educate the students on international relations.
