Entering its eighth year of solid progress, the Belt and Road Initiative is injecting growing impetus and stability into global cooperation in a world of uncertainties.

Faced with the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19, rising unilateralism and increasing protectionism, the world requires closer ties among all nations. Against this backdrop, the BRI is particularly valuable for cementing connectivity, bridging differences and advancing global cooperation.

With more partners jumping on board for a mutually beneficial journey, there is more to expect in the future: Countries can work together to fight COVID-19, economic slowdowns, poverty, climate change and other common challenges, regardless of geographical or ideological boundaries.
