The delegates had in-depth discussions on the challenges and opportunities faced by global governance and shared views on effective approaches to promoting the match of the national strategies of different countries with the Belt and Road initiative and the enhancement of more extensive cooperation.

Since the Belt and Road initiative was put forward 5 years ago, greater development opportunities have emerged in terms of promoting policy communication, infrastructure connectivity, trade facilitation, people-to-people connection, the flow of goods, people, capital and information and the optimized distribution of resources. The meeting has served as a platform for deeper discussions on the mutual-beneficial opportunities brought by Belt and Road as well as new approaches and new outcomes so as to provide intelligent support and guarantee to the pragmatic cooperation among different countries.

III.             Promote Regional Coordinated Development and High-level Opening-up under the Belt and Road Framework

Regional coordinated development and high-level opening-up are the important tool and successful experience of the past to promote the cooperation between China and ASEAN countries to enter into a new era and the development of Third-Party cooperation between China and developed countries including Europe, the US and Japan.
