Cooperation mechanisms are essential to safeguarding the steady and sustained progress of BRI cooperation. The past decade witnessed many achievements under BRI cooperation. What progress has been made in establishing international cooperation mechanisms? Thank you.

Li Kexin:

In the past decade, China has worked in collaboration with partners to establish a composite international cooperation architecture, which is led by the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation and supported by various bilateral, trilateral, and multilateral cooperation mechanisms. The cooperation has yielded fruitful results.

First, the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation has played a leading role. China hosted the first and second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in 2017 and 2019. During the two forums, participants had in-depth exchanges and reached extensive consensus on the direction for and key areas of BRI cooperation. The third Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation will be held in Beijing this month.

Second, bilateral cooperation mechanisms have been strengthened. With the global partnership network of the BRI expanding annually, China has signed BRI cooperation agreements with more than 150 countries and 30 international organizations. The BRI aligns with the development strategies of more than 30 countries and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and it synergizes with the development plans of ASEAN, the African Union, the Eurasian Economic Union, and other regional organizations.

Third, multi-sector and multilateral cooperation platforms have been upgraded. Over the past 10 years, China has worked with other parties to establish more than 20 multilateral cooperation platforms under the BRI framework, covering sectors such as energy, taxation, finance, culture, and green development. These platforms have advanced coordinated policy communication and practical cooperation. It's worth noting that these multilateral mechanism platforms have endured the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, with dozens of international conferences being held annually. This resilience and vitality have allowed them to further build international consensus for BRI cooperation.

Generally, jointly building the Belt and Road has realized all-round and balanced progress in cooperation philosophy, mechanisms and practical actions. Through hosting the Third Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, China, in collaboration with all parties, is committed to delivering new accomplishments of high-quality BRI cooperation, contributing more to the development and prosperity of all countries and building a community with a shared future for mankind. Thank you!

Chen Wenjun: 

The last two questions.
