China Launches Belt and Road Platform to Promote Innovation

Dec 06, 2016     Email"> PrintText Size

To get more young people involved in start-up opportunities, the China Youth University of Political Studies and the Chinese Academy of Sciences launched a platform dedicated to creating innovative cultural opportunities within the framework of China's "Belt and Road" initiative on Saturday in Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan Province.

"The Belt and Road has not been limited to commercial activities," Zhang Yunling, a member of the Presidium of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Academic Divisions, said at the launch.

Zhang pointed out that the "Belt and Road" initiative should not only focus on national level projects such as the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the Silk Road Fund, but also develop "new types of cooperation."

Li Shaoxiang, former vice president of the China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, explained that while a national framework has been created for the Belt and Road, the initiative still needs to make breakthroughs when it comes to promoting exchanges between young academics.
