A total of 106 cadets from 12 Chinese army academies and military institutes from 16 countries including Brazil, France, Germany and Japan will be mixed into groups to participate in study, training, exchange and touring activities.

Held by the Army Engineering University of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), this year's event focuses on the challenges of diverse military tasks faced by junior commanding officers.
