The harsh cold didn't hamper JAAS staff enthusiasm for hiking and the coming of New Year. At 9:00 on December 30, more than 600 participants from 22 departments gathered in front of JAAS comprehensive building. All of them were high spirited and physically prepared, with the academy flag and institute flags flying in the winds.
After the passionate speech of JAAS Vice President Zhou Jiannong, the participants headed to Zijin Mountain and the number of the team refreshed a new record in JAAS hiking. JAAS Vice Presidents Chang Youhong and Zheng Jianchu joined the hiking activity. During the activity, everybody strived to climb high and at the same time helped each other, which displayed harmony, vigor and persistency.
This type of activity not only helped JAAS staff to relax themselves, but also provided communication opportunities.
