The two sides will promote investment and sustainable development, expand international and regional cooperation opportunities and join hands in setting up an innovative development center for the “One Belt, One Road” initiative.

A joint statement on building strategic partnership was signed following the dialogue. Moving forward, the two sides will continue to enhance communication on policies, strategic coordination, and cooperation on economic development analysis on economies along the Belt and Road, strategic inclusive economic growth model, promoting sustainable development and innovative investment model, selecting and implementing cooperation projects and creating best practices.
