How Gen Z sees the world: Overseas students hold high expectations for future of BRI
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). It aims to build trade and infrastructure networks connecting Asia with Europe and beyond, along the ancient Silk Road trade routes for common development and prosperity. As a new model for international cooperation, the BRI has shown its vitality and resilience in promoting global development through openness, inclusiveness, mutual benefits and sustainability.
CGTN stringer hit the campus of Tsinghua University in China's capital, to find out the expectations of overseas youth towards BRI. Chong Wen-fei from Indonesia hopes that both countries could maintain strong relations and Indonesia could have more high-speed railways like Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Railway built by China. Singaporean student Shinna believes that BRI would make Asian countries more co-dependent economically because "the BRI really increases the efficiency of transportation."
