He Zukun: Think tanks are important forces for building Belt and Road

China-South and Southeast Asia Think Tank Forum, Social Sciences

The 7th China-South and Southeast Asia Think Tank Forum kicked off in Kunming on June 12th. At the opening ceremony, He Zukun, dean of the Yunnan Provincial Academy of Social Sciences, delivered a keynote speech entitled Think Tanks Are Important Forces for Building the Belt and Road. Focusing on how think tanks should promote and implement the results of the 2nd Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, He raised four questions that aroused attention and resonated with the gathered think tank experts and scholars.

Firstly, according to He Zukun, we should make building the Belt and Road an important practical platform for creating a community with shared future for mankind, while showing the direction forward for promoting pragmatic cooperation between China and South and Southeast Asia. We should aim high and look far while building the Belt and Road. In a study of the Belt and Road Initiative, the most fundamental question for think tanks is to look at the initiative correctively. This is also the basic premise of interpreting and studying the initiative. Facts have proved that the Belt and Road Initiative has been proposed for the sake of the world, as well as the common development of all countries. It is not the old routine of geopolitical maneuvering, but a new path of win-win cooperation.

Secondly, we should jointly study in depth the major practical issues concerning the implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative in South and Southeast Asia. This is accomplished partly by providing ideas for promoting pragmatic cooperation between China and South and Southeast Asia. For example, in the building of the Belt and Road, we should study how to achieve common high-quality development, enhance connectivity and facilitate the creation of an economic corridor in the region, so as to provide valuable suggestions for cooperation between China and South and Southeast Asia.

Thirdly, we should jointly study the important issues of cooperation mechanisms and platform construction, and propose pragmaticrules and standards for promoting the building of a community with shared future between China and South and Southeast Asia. We should bring into play the role of various nations, companies, industry associations and other entities in order to strengthencooperation in terms of research and applications of technical standards among the involved countries. For example, for the key areas of cooperation between China and South and Southeast Asia, we should promote mutual recognition of industry standards.We should start with border and cross-border economic cooperation zones and joint ventures to promote mutual recognition of standards and the formulation of new guidelines to build a cohesive  system for promoting the creation of the Belt and Road.

Fourthly, we should jointly explore ways to enhance people-to-people bonds and strengthen popular support for pragmatically promoting the building of a community with shared future for China and South and Southeast Asia. We should seek to further improve the level of these people-to-people exchanges, while actively building a bridge for mutual learning among different civilizations. This can be accomplished by strengthening exchanges and cooperation in various fields such as think tanks, press, education, culture, technology, sports, tourism and health. Finally, we should strive to eliminate examples of past estrangements due to misunderstandings, misinterpretations and misjudgments, and write more exciting stories for the Silk Road.
