The document aims to further deepen the strategic partnership between Belarus and China in a wide range of areas in 2021-2025, while becoming a logical continuation of the same directive for 2015-2021.

Strengthening of co-operation in the political sphere, preservation and enhancement of the values of friendship and mutual support, expansion of trade, economic, financial, investment liaisons, implementation of the Belt and Road initiative have been outlined as key priorities for the near future. Among the important tasks are also expansion of interregional ties, development of co-operation in the military and military-technical fields, in the area of digital economy and information and communication technologies, strengthening of sci-tech co-operation, and development of relations in the humanitarian sphere.

In order to fulfil these tasks, state administration bodies and other economic entities involved in co-operation with China are instructed to ensure implementation of about fifty specific practical measures.

Effective realisation of the set goals will contribute to bringing bilateral relations to a qualitatively new level.
