Referring to the initiative as a common endeavor, Xi urged the participating countries to relate to each other with mutual respect and inclusiveness.

Xi said, “The Belt and Road Initiative has existed for three years and has attracted a lot of attention, as well as positive support from countries situated along the route.

“With their support, clear progress has been made. This has delivered the message that mutual benefit and the spirit of learning from each other never fades as time passes.

“Also the belief in a peaceful, open and inclusive cooperation among countries is treasured without borders. This has carried forward the Silk Road spirit, to build up the One Belt and One Road under consensus.

“This is also to enhance regional economic prosperity, as well as world peace and stability. This is the world trend and reflects the hopes of all people.”
