In late April, the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) will be held in Beijing. Focusing on the theme of “Belt and Road Cooperation: Shaping a Brighter Shared Future”, thousands of delegates from different circles of more than 100 countries will gather to have an in-depth exchange of views, discuss future plans for cooperation, and pool the wisdom and strength for the efforts to advance the Belt and Road Initiative in the next stage.


Promoting People-to-people connectivity is an important part of the Belt and Road Initiative, and the SIRONET is an important platform to promote people-to-people cooperation under the framework of the Initiative. To echo the proposals and ideas of the Second BRF and turn the vision into realities, after consulting with some members, the SIRONET Secretariat has decided to hold the Second Silk Road NGO Cooperation Network Forum on 27-28 April in Beijing. Focusing on the theme of “Deepening Practical Cooperation for Better Lives”, the forum will provide a platform for delegates to exchange their ideas in an in-depth manner on topics including expanding the international cooperation among Belt and Road areas, identifying the needs of people in pursuit of better lives, and perfecting the SIRONET mechanism. Our purpose is to further improve the SIRONET, and facilitate the coordinated efforts and deepened cooperation among SIRONET members so that jointly we can play a more positive role in strengthening the understanding and mutual trust among people in the Belt and Road countries as well as contributing to better lives.


Your support and involvement would be greatly anticipated.
