The Belt and Road cooperation is a Chinese scheme as well as a global public product, said Jiang Jianguo, deputy head of the publicity department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.

Li Baoshan, President of People’s Daily, said the co-construction of the Belt and Road had provided a platform and a necessary approach for global governance and economic globalization. The construction of the B&R focuses on economic development and doesn’t seek political goals; it is based on opening up and cooperation and is above protectionism, Li said.

B&R construction is dedicated to achieving mutually beneficial cooperation and win-win results, not zero-sum outcomes. Additionally, it upholds international rules and doesn’t start a new model, Li added.
