Minister Zhu Qin Attends the World Trade Symposium 2017 Live Dialogue Hosted by the Financial Times: One Belt, One Road

   On June 6, Minister Zhu Qin attended the World Trade Symposium 2017 Live Dialogue on One Belt, One Road hosted by the Financial Times. The Dialogue was moderated by Stefania Palma, Asia Editor of The Banker, the Financial Times monthly magazine. The other panelists were from the HSBC and the Chatham House.

   Minister Zhu briefed the participants on the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation and its outcomes. He noted that the Belt and Road Initiative aims to promote infrastructure construction and interconnectivity, dock the policies and development strategies of different countries, deepen pragmatic cooperation and promote coordinated development to achieve common prosperity. The open and inclusive Belt and Road Initiative sends a clear signal that China will work with all parties to build an open, innovative and coordinated world economy, which will benefit not only China but also the whole world. 

   Minister Zhu said that the UK is a key partner in the Belt and Road Initiative. China and Britain have political consensus, solid foundation and huge potential for further cooperation in the Belt and Road Initiative. The two countries can work together to enhance policy coordination, match up our respective strengths in capital, industrial capacity, market, services and try out new investment and financing models. This could enable us to upgrade our Belt and Road cooperation on finance, law, infrastructure and so on. China and the UK can also increase investment in areas such as development assistance, R&D and environmental conservation, and engage third parties along the Belt and Road routes. In this process, the two countries can achieve more than simply "one plus one".

   Minister Zhu also exchanged views with the panelists and the audience on risk control, financing assurance and other issues concerned of Belt and Road Initiative.
