On April 27th, the curtain falls on the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, and the positive comments from the international press show that the world is full of expectations for the Belt and Road Initiative.

“This year’s Forum sends a clear message: more and more friends and partners will join in Belt and Road cooperation, and the cooperation will enjoy higher quality and brighter prospects.” Chinese President Xi Jinping’s remarks at the press conference of the forum resonated with many foreign media.

The specific measures for promoting high-quality Belt and Road cooperation drew intense attention from major foreign media. Reuters noted President Xi Jinping’s proposal to be guided by the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, act in the spirit of multilateralism, pursue cooperation through consultation and keep all participants motivated. China has also pledged to enter into negotiation with more countries to conclude high-standard free trade agreements, and strengthen cooperation in customs, taxation and audit oversight by setting up the Belt and Road Initiative Tax Administration Cooperation Mechanism.

“China’s Belt and Road Initiative has attracted many core EU countries such as Italy, and the ancient Silk Road is quickly reviving.” Neue Zürcher Zeitung also commented that China is Switzerland’s largest trading partner in Asia, and the Belt and Road Initiative is without doubt good for the country’s economic development.

“As China promises to open the Belt and Road to more international and private investors, Western business centres led by London are waiting in line to participate in Belt and Road projects,” Financial Times reported on its website.

The Hindu pointed out on its website that the global influence of China’s Belt and Road Initiative marks the arrival of a new, Asian-led order, and India cannot afford to exclude itself from this new order.

“The Belt and Road Initiative is a success. The well-functioning infrastructure can be a great impetus to economic development. It is making Africa, Central Asia, Central America and South-eastern Europe more powerful,” Deutsche Welle reported. “With the Belt and Road Initiative, many countries are showing signs of prosperity, which was unimaginable 10 years ago. No other politician has inspired such great hopes globally in the past decades.”
