China’s Belt & Road Initiative (BRI) has gained wide support worldwide, as it has brought development opportunities to the other Countries.
The development of the Piraeus Port located in Greece under the Belt & Road Initiative sets a model for mutually beneficial cooperation between China and Greece, as it sees impressive results in the past ten years.
“Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on several occasions has briefed the world about the importance of this win-win logic in Greek-China relations.
So during the pandemic for example, we have seen the Piraeus Port has performed relatively well, meaning that it has helped us even to respond to challenges which have largely affected global trade,” said George N. Tzogopoulos, senior research fellow of International Center for European Studies, during an interview with China Central Television recently.
China has signed a total of 203 documents for Belt & Road Cooperation with 138 Countries and 31 Global Organizations so far, and the Belt & Road Initiative are winning over support from an increasing number of countries since it aims to promote common development.
“Many Countries have benefited from the Belt & Road Initiative, and the connections and communications became more closer, including economic connections. China and the countries participating in this initiative are taking the right road,” said Friedhelm Ost, former Chairman of the Committee on Economics and Technology of German Federal Parliament, during an interview recently.
The Belt & Road Initiative, proposed by China in 2013, aims at building a Trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient Silk Road trade routes to seek common development and prosperity.
