According to the Chinese leader, Beijing hopes to create a new model of mutually beneficial cooperation via implementing the so-called One Belt, One Road project.

In 2013, Beijing launched "One Belt, One Road" aimed at strengthening ties between Eurasian countries and at development of infrastructure across the continent. The initiative focuses mainly on investments and creation of the Maritime Silk Route and on the land-based Silk Road Economic Belt.
