The university publishes a series of books on the initiative
The Belt and Road School of Beijing Normal University recently published a series of books on the development of cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative.
The books, the latest research findings from the school’s faculty, argue that the future construction of the BRI will encompass four key features, namely integrated development, carbon reduction, digitalization and poverty reduction.
Ma Jun, president of Beijing Normal University, said the Belt and Road School was established by the university for talent cultivation, scholarly research and policy studies, all of which focus on the development of the BRI.
“Our university is willing to strengthen collaboration with various sectors around the world to contribute to the high-quality development of Belt and Road cooperation, the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, and the building of a community with a shared future. shared for human beings,” he says.
The series of 13 new books aims to comprehensively interpret President Xi Jinping’s systematic ideas on high-quality BRI cooperation, conclude lessons learned from nearly a decade of implementing the initiative, and examine future prospects.
Hu Biliang, the school’s executive dean, says the BRI promotes deeper regional economic integration. For example, transport corridors linking China to other relevant countries will enable safer and more efficient connectivity, so as to enhance economic integration.
He added that China, which has advanced new energy technologies, has increased its investment in countries that are part of the related projects, which will help fuel new energy industries in these countries. In addition, international green industrial capacity cooperation and low-carbon transport can also be promoted in the process of building the BRI. Likewise, China’s experience in developing data centers, 5G and e-commerce will also benefit the countries concerned.
“The strong appeal of high-quality Belt and Road cooperation lies in its ability to offer a development-oriented mode of international cooperation that generates new opportunities for the countries involved to realize mutual benefits and coordinated development,” he said.
Topics covered in the books include infrastructure building, trade development, financial collaboration, industrialization, investment risk avoidance, and global poverty reduction under the BRI.
