BRI seen as spurring business development


The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is expected to play an ever greater role in boosting infrastructure projects and speeding up development in many countries thanks to China's high-quality opening-up and international collaboration.

The initiative has always been development-oriented, and consistent efforts have been made to ensure that it is high-standard, sustainable and people-centered. Sinomach, an active participant of BRI construction, has made great efforts to explore more cooperation with BRI countries.
