China offers a new model of international cooperation
China will promote alignment of its strategies and development programs with foreign countries as part of the One Belt, One Road initiative. Such statement was made in China at a session of the country’s supreme government authority– the National People’s Congress of China. Interaction between Kazakhstan’s Nurly Zhol program and China’s One Belt, One Road has already produced such as the increased cargo traffic through Kazakhstan. Xi Jinping first announced the global project of China’s future development in Astana 5 years ago. Since then, the program has become the basic strategies of China’s foreign policy and foreign economic activities.
LI KEQIANG, PREMIER, STATE COUNCIL OF CHINA:
- In the past 5 years we have been working on the implementation of the plans set out by the central committee of the party headed by Xi Jinping. We were committed to the principle of achieving progress and provided stability as well. New approaches to implementation of reforms were also developed. We managed to maintain the main indicators at an adequate level and achieve stable and positive economic indicators.
66 countries and regions have joined the One Belt, One Road initiative. The conceptually new model of international cooperation benefits all the participant countries. There is a clear understanding of it in the whole world.
BAYARBIGEL GANBAYAR, MONGOLIAN JOURNALIST
I think that the “One belt, one road” initiative plays a key role not only for China, but for Mongolia and other neighboring countries as well. Mongolia plans to coordinate the Steppe Road initiative with China’s One Belt, One Road initiative. Such projects are beneficial not only for investment attraction to Mongolia but it also gives Mongolian businesspeople an important commercial platform to cooperate with the Chinese partners.
TOMASZ PISULA, PRESIDENT, POLISH INVESTMENT AND TRADE AGENCY:
-The political and geopolitical balance of powers is changing. It is shifting towards Asia. China’s role on the global arena is becoming more inspiring and that’s why the world should know more about it.
The current session of the National People’s Congress will finish on the 20th of March. Before then, the members will review China’s 5-year development strategy, elect the heads of government bodies and adopt important amendments to the constitution.
