In the afternoon of May 27th, China NGO Network for International Exchanges (CNIE) held a seminar on the development of Silk Road NGO Cooperation Network (Cooperation Network). Attendants include China Federation of Industrial Economics, China Vocational Education Association, All-China Environment Federation, China Volunteer Service Federation, Beijing NGO Association for International Exchanges, Zhongguancun Belt and Road Industrial Promotion Association and other members of the Cooperation Network.
CNIE Secretary General Zhu Rui, drawing on his own experience, delivered a keynote speech on Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (the Forum) and its Parallel Session on Promoting People-to-people Connectivity. CNIE Deputy Secretary General Liu Kaiyang moderated the Session and gave closing remarks. Attendants held in-depth discussions on the Forum and the development of Cooperation Network. They believe that CNIE’s proposal of the Cooperation Network occurs at the right time with great significance. It provides a big platform for Chinese NGOs to go global and be more involved in global governance. Chinese NGOs are willing to draw on their own strength and contribute to the development of Cooperation Network and people-to-people connectivity along the Belt and Road Initiative.
