Universities of China and Belarus launched a joint Chinese-Belarussian research center for studying One Belt, One Road project in Beijing on January 9, Xinhua news agency reports.
This new initiative involves the Beijing Normal University (BNU) and the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB).
Professor Hu Biliang, Dean of the Emerging Markets Research Institute at the Beijing Normal University (BNU), noted that the research center will focus on strengthening the China-Belarus relations in the sphere of new industries and staff training for the One Belt, One Road project, increasing cooperation between Beijing and the five Eurasian Economic Union member states, and speeding up the construction of the the Silk Road Economic Belt.
Similar opening ceremony took place at the end of last year at the Beijing Normal University (BNU) where Petr Vityaz, the Head of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB), emphasized the significance of the Great Stone China-Belarus Industrial Park project execution.
Xi Jinping, the President of the People’s Republic of China, proposed the One Belt, One Road initiative in 2013. The program includes establishment on sea and railroad routes, it includes not only transport infrastructure modernization but also the development of the agro-industrial complex along these routes. The project has already been supported by more than a hundred countries. Since 2013, China has invested more than $50 billion in the economies of 20 countries along the One Belt, One Road project, where the Chinese enterprises created 56 special zones for economic and trade cooperation.
The implementation of the One Belt, One Road project in any given country enhances greatly the influence of China in it. Subsequently, the more countries are involved in the project, the closer China is to global domination, something the Beijing officials try to deny in every way.
