On May 15, the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation(BRF)concluded in Beijing. Participants reached a number of important consensuses with more than 270 concrete results, and a joint communique was also issued. Chinese President Xi Jinping chaired the round table summit and met with Chinese and foreign journalists. The BRF, a high-profile and fruitful event, marks a new milestone for the B&R cooperation, and added a new chapter to the B&R Initiative’s development history and China's "home field" diplomacy.

The BRF defined the direction of future cooperation under the B&R Initiative, promoted the docking of development strategies, identified key fields of cooperation and a roadmap for action, opened up a new chapter of international cooperation, and beamed  an active signal of building a community of shared future for mankind to the world.

The results achieved by the BRF are expected to promote the B&R cooperation to the next level—broader, deeper and higher, that is instrumental in building a fairer, more rational and balanced global governance system and resolving the peace deficit, development deficit and governance deficit.

Standing at a new starting point, the B&R Initiative sets out on a new journey with high hopes. The B&R proceeds with a surging impetus from Beijing's Yanqi Lake and moves towards a brighter future.
