Shaanxi Merits Our Infinite Expectations: Shaanxi as a Hot Topic at the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation

 

On the morning of May 14, a total of 29 foreign heads of state and government leaders, more than 1500 representatives and more than 4000 Chinese and foreign journalists present witnessed the ceremony of Belt and Road Forum (BRF) for International Cooperation.

For the recent 4 years, through joint endeavor in policy, infrastructure, trade, finance and communication, the Belt and Road has developed from a concept and vision into actions and reality.

The 7000 km ancient Silk Road is a strategic passage for cultural exchange between the east and the west. Shaanxi Province is the starting point of the ancient Silk Road, and now the Silk Road serves as a miniature for the world to understand Shaanxi.

“Xi’an - A City Full of Unique Features”

The President of AAQIUS Group said, “I’ve enjoyed the renowned attractions and delicious food in Xi’an to my heart’s content and Emperor Qinshihuang’s Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses impressed me most. Xi’an is an ancient city as well the starting point of the ancient Silk Road. In the eyes of westerners, Xi’an is a beautiful city full of unique features. We look forward to more cooperation and broad development in the promising future.”

AAQIUS is focused on profitable green technologies, providing market with hydrogen energy characterized by simplified low investment. He considered that the Belt and Road has proposed a new international cooperation mode, which will be of great importance to European countries. More close cooperation between China and countries in Europe through the Belt and Road is expected. At the forum, a lot of investment programs have been concluded between China and the countries along the Belt and Road, which fully revealed China’s determination of promoting international cooperation.

“Xi’an-A Modern City with Long-standing Culture”

“Xi’an is a modern city with long-standing culture.” said Hdda Abdo with UAE CATV after visiting Xi’an in 2015.

“China is becoming an international power and active participant in many fields of the world.” said Hdda Abdo in fluent Chinese. “I think Chinese language merits my endeavor and I’m also fond of Chinese history, culture and calligraphy.”

Hdda Abdo also said, “The Belt and Road is a bridge between China and Arabian countries, which will bring further cooperation.”

“A Visit to Shaanxi Planned after the BRF”

“After the BRF, I’ll visit Shaanxi.” said John Baile, a journalist with South African Satellite TV. “As the starting point of the ancient Silk Road, Shaanxi is abundant in historical relics and tourism resources.” He has visited Shaanxi twice and experienced in person the great changes in the province. He said that though two media from South Africa attended the forum, many journalists are looking forward to opportunities to visit China and experiencing such an international event. “Since establishment of diplomatic relations between China and South Africa, cooperation between the two countries has enlarged and increased. Especially, the Belt and Road gives us the chance to gain a better understanding of China.” he said.

Spanning thousands of miles and years, the Silk Road embodies the spirit of peace and cooperation, openness and inclusiveness, which has become a great heritage of human civilization. With development of the Belt and Road, Shaanxi has ushered in a new era of development opportunities. Shaanxi will provide fresh impetus to the Belt and Road through reform and innovation.
