World media gathers for B&R Forum

The 2017 Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation opened on May 14 at the China National Convention Center (CNCC) in Beijing. It is a high-profile international meeting on the Belt and Road Initiative, a China-proposed trade and infrastructure plan connecting Asia with Europe and Africa.

China will use the forum, which is to close on Monday, to build a more open and efficient international cooperation platform and a closer, stronger partnership network as well as to push for a more just, reasonable and balanced international governance system.

The Forum has captured the world’s attention and attracted more than 4,000 journalists from across the world.
