The participants spoke highly of the important role played by think tanks and fully affirmed the practical results of international think tank cooperation and exchanges under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

The eight major steps put forward by Chinese President Xi Jinping to support high-quality Belt and Road cooperation on Wednesday will surely inject strong impetus into the development of the BRI, the participants said, calling for deepening research and cooperation of think tanks to help promote high-quality Belt and Road cooperation into a new stage.
