Impressive results of five sub-forums

Impressive results of five sub-forums
International scholars on the think tank forum

The 7th China-South and Southeast Asia Think Tank Forum consists of five sub-forums. These concern sub-regional cooperation and economic corridor construction, cultural exchanges and people-to-people bonds, cooperation between China and the Indian Ocean region, open development and experience sharing, and building Yunnan into a pivot of China's opening up to South and Southeast Asia.

Professor Lee Laito of Mae Fah Luang University in Chiang Rai, Thailand, reported the results of the sub-forum on sub-regional cooperation and economic corridor construction. He said, Yunnan is actively engaged in building the Belt and Road. While improving the "hardware" of connectivity across five aspects, the province should pay more attention to the "software” by increasing pragmatic cooperation with ASEAN nations and those in South Asia. He described  the China-Laos Economic Corridor, by turning Laos from a landlocked country into a land-linked country, has benefited the Lao people. Endowed with the foundation, resources and ability for deeper cooperation with South and Southeast Asian countries, Yunnan will play an important role in this process in the future.

At the sub-forum on cultural exchanges and people-to-people bonds, 18 speakers and six commentators spoke on specific topics. These included China relations regarding Lao society and culture, China's influence on Bangladeshi language and culture, government and social relations between Bangladesh, China, India and Myanmar and their impact on cultural exchanges, construction of cultural think tanks in Vietnam, the impacts of South and Southeast Asian pop culture on people-to-people bonds, and the spread of Tibetan medicinal culture in South and Southeast Asia.

Ren Jia, counselor of the Yunnan provincial government, and former dean and researcher at the Yunnan Academy of Social Sciences, reported the results of the sub-forum on cooperation between China and the Indian Ocean region. Among the 19 scholars who spoke, some innovatively observed the governance of India from the perspective of the Indian election, which is worth learning from. Meanwhile, they shared their insights on the restoration and protection of cultural monuments after the earthquake in Nepal. As pointed out by some scholars, the countries of South and Southeast Asia have represented an important geographical location but a fragile security environment. For countries in this region, the top priority is to develop their economies while maintaining regional stability.

Cheng Mingyu, director of the Center for Strategic Studies on the Belt and Road Initiative at the Malaysian University of Tunku Abdul Rahman, reported the results of the sub-forum on open development and experience sharing. Speakers from China, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Laos, the Philippines and other countries explored international cooperative measures in terms of economic and trade investment, tourism, finance, arts, culture and education. In addition, they also discussed energy security, legal systems, maritime cooperation, poverty alleviation and climate change.

In the sub-forum on building Yunnan into a pivot of opening up to South and Southeast Asia. The speakers proposed seven measures. These included promoting scientific and technological cooperation and progress, facilitating the sharing of results and cooperative measures between think tanks—especially exchanges among the elites of these think tanks—and increasing cooperation in the study of cultures, religions and security in South and Southeast Asian countries.
