agree  LoyalTrans: onsite inspection
7 hrs

disagree  a-me: 作为商务考察团领队,我所经历的考察目的地均为各方面发展比较成熟的”发达国家“,行程带有参观、学习、借鉴的任务,而且参观范围比较广(包含工厂规模、公司团体运作、道路绿化、城市规划、甚至国家治理)。故inspection一词稍嫌局限并且带有上级领导/监督部门到下级部门视察的语意。

study


Explanation:
The delagation did/conducted/carried out an extensive study (of the local business climate, investment opportunities, etc.).

agree  Francis Fine: The disagreement expressed by a colleague is valid. But until we learn more of the context and true situation, I still suggest using "inspection," for study, survey observation, examination are all different and only conditional substatitutes.
