    Welcome to the forum, justnothing.

    First, please study the following corrections I have made to your post:

    Hello guys,
    (salutations are unnecessary).

    I'm so excited be a part of this club. by the way, I have a problem in using the word "inline". Is it correct if I write "inline" in the sentence "This cooperation is in line with the country's specific needs."?

    Please (no comma) give me a correct explanation. Thank you.

    Only 'in line' is correct. It means 'in accordance with'.

    And note that it's two words. There are specialist uses for the single word 'inline' (in, for example, ICT), which aren't appropriate in this context. Use a dictionary if you want to use 'inline'.
