The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has operated for nearly six years and has brought tremendous opportunities to the participant countries.
Since its inception, China’s trade volume with participant countries has exceeded $6 trillion. Its annual growth rate has outpaced the growth rate of China’s total foreign trade. China’s outbound foreign investment to B&R countries has surpassed $90 billion.
These figures mean more job opportunities, more people shaking off poverty, and improved infrastructure in B&R countries.
