The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation will be held in Beijing on May 14-15. Alexander Grigoryevich Lukashenko, president of Belarus, will attend the event.
The year of 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Sino-Belarus diplomatic relations. In order to better promote the bilateral exchanges between the two countries, a Chinese press delegation, at the invitation of the ministries of foreign affairs and information of the Republic of Belarus, made a 7-day media tour around the eastern European country starting from May 1.
A Pearl on Silk Road Economic Belt
On the morning of May 4 (local time) in Independence Palace, Minsk, Belarusian President Lukashenko received a joint interview of 23 Chinese mainstream media outlets, including People's Daily, Xinhua News Agency, China Central Television, Sichuan Daily and gochengdu.cn.
Under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative, the Great Stone Industrial Park (also known as China-Belarus Industrial Park), a model of the Sino-Belarus partnership, has generated huge opportunities for the eastern European country's economic growth. So far, the park has been home to 9 Chinese companies, including Chengdu Xinzhu Corporation, which is one of the first companies to locate in the park and an outstanding representative of Chinese hi-tech companies going global. The company has set up super capacitor R & D and production centers here, and its products will be used to public transport vehicles in Belarusian cities.
The Chinese press group visited the park just before the day of the presidential press conference, learning about the construction progress of the super capacitor project. The major part of the project, an 1800-square meter production facility, has been completed and will hopefully be put into operation in December this year. During the construction, Xinzhu Corporation has received orders from Belarusian customers.
Although the project is still under construction, the cooperation between Xinzhu and its Belarusian partners are going well. An 18-meter super capacitor city bus co-produced by Xinzhu and Minsk Automobile Plant will be put into use in Minsk by the end of May.
In March, a charter cargo trains loaded with auto parts worth nearly US$600,000 for 28 cars made by Chinese auto maker Geely left from Chengdu International Railway Port to Belarus. The 8866-kilometer journey took 12 days. An official from Belgee, Geely's branch in Belarus, expressed that the Chengdu-Europe Express Rail Cargo Service cuts greatly his company's transportation time and Geely would prioritize the service for its product transport in the future.
Chengdu Journalists Got Much Media Exposure in Belarus
Since the arrival of the Chinese press group in Minsk, Belarusian media outlets including local television stations, newspapers and websites had been busy with covering and reporting the tours of their Chinese counterparts in their country.
Journalists from Chengdu were interviewed by lots of Belarusian media outlets, and they were given enough time to ask questions during the presidential joint press conference and the visits to Belaz (Belarusian Automobile Plant) and Gomel, a sister city-to-be of Chengdu. The reporter from gochengdu.cn was interviewed many times by many local media outlets, including the National State TV and Radio Company of the Republic of Belarus and television of Gomel Region. He shared what he had seen and heard in Belarus, and major information on the city of Chengdu and the Chengdu-Europe Express Rail Cargo Service.
