It has been five years since the official announcement of the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013.

However, we acknowledged that the development of the Belt and Road Initiative has also encountered some problems and facing challenges, including the environmental problems, political differences, religious belief, cultural differences and conflicts, in the development procedure, the institutional difference among different countries, and so on. These problems and challenges have been affecting and will affect the global efficiency of the industrial cooperation and labor division, and the maximization of the global economic and social benefits of the Belt and Road Initiative.

 

The planned “International Workshop on Production Capacity Cooperation and Green Development within the Belt and Road Initiative” is to summarize the past experience, analyze the problems and challenges, and find the solutions, which may make useful suggestions to help a steady progress and development of the production capacity cooperation within the Belt and Road Initiative.
