The meeting was attended by eight representatives from IUIA North American member institutions, including Xiao Shuigen, vice president assistant of Georgetown University, and Jessica Sebeok, vice president of Association of American Universities.

A promotion film was shown to the attendees, helping them gain a better understanding of Malu's overall planning, medical, education, culture and commerce resources, industrial development, as well as talent and startup services.

Sebeok gave a speech about American universities and regional economic development. Other attendees also briefly introduced their universities or associations and exchanged ideas with Malu officials about industry-university-research cooperation, technological transfer, and innovation and entrepreneurship services.

Additionally, the attendees visited a local planning hall, Jiayuanhai Art Center, and venues of the town's key industries.
