The Belt and Road Initiative is now running for a coupl

of years and has achieved success even in Europe, but it is not finished yet and it should be a win-wi

n situation for China and Europe. China is a very big market and an important global player.

China is Germany’s biggest trading partner, so I think there will be a good future for the two countries.

The Belt and Road Initiative has been a very successful integration proj

ect which is bringing China closer to the world. President Xi Jinping’s speech today is outli

ning that more and more countries can participate, share prosperity, as well as win-win results.

I think that the future will be bright and that especially t

he West needs to better understand what this Belt and Road Initia

tive means and why this shared prosperity can be created and benefit people across the world.aime Irachande Gouv

Thanks to Chengdu’s geographical advantages with

regard to the Belt and Road Initiative, local companies have linked to global markets more frequently. Companies that

used to lack the confidence to go global began taking the step. Companies that have had export business for years upg

raded their product structure and expanded their business to production capacity cooperation and technological export.

Chengdu Xinzhu Road and Bridge Machinery is a prime ex

ample. The company was founded as an infrastructure company, and its business has exp

anded to include new energy and railway traffic. In September 2018, the company’s production base at the China-Bela

rus Industrial Park in Minsk was launched to produce super capacitors used in buses. They’re the first high-tech manu

facturer to begin operation in the park. Before that, the company mainly exported parts used in roads and bridges’ construction.

The drinking water source enforcement app integra

tes satellite remote sensing images, water environment problems spotted by satellite, water protection zone bound

ary’s spatial data, water environment problems found by provinces and cities themselves and law enfo

rcement data at the scene, and sends environmental problem lists to law enforcers at the scene to guide their work.

The app was used during the nationwide inspection on water sources i

n 2018 and the law enforcement during water sources inspection at county level this year.

Meng Zhiqi, a law enforcer with the water ecology and environment department of Shang

hai bureau of ecology and environment, has witnessed the app’s ability. “We received

a message from a work team of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, saying there was an illegal shrimp farming house with a chimney deep

inside a water resource conservation forest, but my colleagues and I didn’t know how to get there. Later, we fo

llowed the map provided by the app and demolished the house within 24 hours,” said Meng.

China lags behind leading economies in water-use efficien

strial added value consumes 45.6 cu m of water, double that for developed economies, he said.

Water conservation should be promoted from developing, using an
