An international symposium to commemorate the eighth anniversary of the Belt and Road Initiative was held in Beijing on Thursday by Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Experts and scholars at the meeting had in-depth discussions on the important progress and notable achievements of the Belt and Road Initiative and how to promote high-quality development of the Belt and Road Initiative under the new circumstances.
Xie Fuzhan, President of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said in his speech that the Belt and Road initiative aims at common development and prosperity of all countries in the world and has brought tangible benefits to countries and regions along the routes by tangible measures. Philosophy and social science workers should firmly grasp this major theme and work hard to build a theoretical system of the Belt and Road initiative to provide solid theoretical guidance for the high-quality development of the Belt and Road initiative.
