(Photo by Lv Qiang from People’s Daily)Six years since it was proposed, the BRI has become the largest platform for international cooperation and the most welcomed global public good.“To date, 123 countries and 29 international organizations have signed BRI agreements with China. They have cast a vote of support and confidence in the BRI.” Wang Yi said.Wang Yi introduced that thanks to the BRI, East Africa now has its first motorway, the Maldives has built its first inter-island bridge, Belarus is able to produce passenger vehicles, Kazakhstan is connected to the sea, Southeast Asia is constructing a high-speed railway, and the Eurasian continent is benefiting from the longest-distance freight train service.“Signing up for the BRI has enabled countries to grow at a faster pace, improve their people’s lives and reap win-win outcomes.” Wang Yi said, adding that all new initiatives need time to mature, and China welcome constructive suggestions from our BRI partners to fully reflect the principle of consultation and cooperation for shared benefits.A Chinese instructor is training a local student in a vocational institute in Uganda. (Photo by Lv Qiang from People’s Daily)As one of the most important diplomatic events at home, the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) will be held in Beijing in late April. The theme of BRF this year is “Belt and Road Cooperation: Shaping a Brighter Shared Future”.Wang Yi introduced that the second BRF aims to bring about high-quality cooperation under the BRI. Chinese President Xi Jinping will give a keynote address at the opening ceremony and chair a leaders’ roundtable. There will also be a high-level meeting, thematic forums and a CEO conference.“The number of foreign heads of state and government expected to attend will be much larger than that of the first BRF.” Wang Yi said, adding that there will be thousands of delegates from over 100 countries who attend the second BRF.var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Hongyu, Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9554904;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingFujian reaps benefits from Belt and RoadInterview: BRI lessens Kuwaits reliance on oil exports — Kuwaiti expertBelt and Road Initiative brings development and hope: SpokespersonB&R Initiative brings development, hope: spokespersonChinas B&R bond issuance increases in 2018China to donate over 200,000 panda-themed “care parcels” to 11 Belt and Road countries in 2019Asian cities lead global peers in dynamism rankingsChina-Portugal cooperation under BRI framework has broad prospects: Chinese ambassadorBelt and Road highlighted in Putin’s State-of-Nation AddressBRI creates new drivers for common development between China, Nigeria: Chinese ambassadorWe RecommendForeign-funded companies in Beijings CBD tops 10,000
