BEIJING, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday stressed leveraging the enabling role of transport and increasing related input in poor regions, so that local economies and people's lives could improve as a result of better roads.

To achieve common prosperity, efforts should be made to enhance North-South and South-South cooperation and scale up support for developing transport infrastructure in the least developed countries and landlocked developing countries, Xi noted.

Xi made the remarks while delivering a keynote speech via video link at the opening ceremony of the Second United Nations Global Sustainable Transport Conference in Beijing.
