Anchoring the economic belt
Silk Road Economic Belt project to create significant opportunities for developing Chinese-Belarusian relations
According to the diplomat, Belarus is the anchor point of the Silk Road Economic Belt in Europe. Cui Qiming stressed the importance of President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, actively supporting the initiative of Chinese President Xi Jinping to jointly construct the economic zone of the Silk Road. He noted, “It’s so important that Belarus, which has a unique geographical location, is ready to co-operate with China in building the Chinese-Belarusian Industrial Park. We’re discussing major projects in mechanical engineering, information and telecommunications.”
Logistics and transport are also to the fore, and every effort is being made to ensure that the Industrial Park becomes a model for use within the Silk Road Economic Belt. “Goals have been defined, and we have confidence that efforts on both sides will allow these to be achieved,” says the head of the diplomatic mission.
