The Belt and Road participating States need to Coordinate their action to maximise assistance for the expansion of economic cooperation and removal of the existing barriers should be coordinated, Belarusian President Alyksandr Lukashenka said while speaking at the 2nd Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing.

“If we want to expand our economic cooperation, add a powerful impetus to the development of economies, we need to work more efficiently to remove all types of barriers.”

Doing this in a single state is the same as eliminating one traffic jam in a big city.

“It will just take you quicker to the next one. Our common task is to coordinate actions along the entire length of the Belt and Road project.”

According to him a number of steps should be taken: firstly, the development of digital transport corridors, primarily between China and Europe;

Secondly, the abolition of the licensing system of international road transportation, which will be an additional incentive for the development of transport and logistics activities; thirdly, the stronger interconnection of infrastructure facilities.

It depends on us whether to follow the new standards of economic cooperation, create a new large family or return to outdated geopolitical manoeuvres.

A strong one will overcome an obstacle, a wise one will cover the whole distance,” President Lukashenka stressed citing a Chinese Proverb.

President Alyaksandr Lukashenka is taking part in the 2nd Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing along with his youngest son Kolya arrived in China together with his father.
