While the world is witnessing many sorrows and misfortunes, such as wars and natural disasters everywhere, China is providing light in the midst of this darkness, as usual, and now more than 140 countries and 30 international organizations are arriving in China to participate in the Belt and Road Conference, for which I expect great success and great benefit. For all the world, especially the countries of the Global South, which have already begun to benefit from this initiative since its launch.
A number of world leaders are heading to Beijing to attend the Third Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, 10 years after the launch of this initiative.

Where Indonesian President Joko Widodo arrived in Beijing. Earlier, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Lao President Thongloun Sisoulith arrived with their spouses. Other arrivals include Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Manet and his wife, Papua New Guinea Prime Minister James Marape and his wife, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, Nigerian Vice President Kashim Shettima, Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe and Republic of the Congo President Denis Sassou Nguesso.

The Third Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation is scheduled to be held in Beijing from October 17 to 18. More than 4,000 delegates from more than 140 countries and more than 30 international organizations have been confirmed to attend, and the forum is considered the most important diplomatic event hosted by China this year.

The forum is expected to achieve important results, as this year’s forum is likely to exceed the total number of achievements achieved by the previous two forums.
