  Themed "Belt and Road, Shared Future," the sixth edition of Vision China, a series of talks organized by China Daily, was held at Beijing Language and Culture University in Beijing on Saturday.

  During the event, four speakers, from China and abroad, shared their opinions on high-quality development under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). They also explored how and why the initiative is nudging global governance toward fairness, inclusivity, mutual benefit, and multilateralism.

  Weng Jieming, vice-chairman of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council, said in the opening remarks that China's State-owned enterprises have actively participated in BRI over the past six years, yielding impressive results in infrastructure connectivity.

  "For further development, the State-owned enterprises will continue to focus on better outcomes under the BRI, by abiding by the values of human progress and providing service with integrity during project constructions," Weng said. He also called for more university students, who formed the majority of the Vision China audience, to participate in BRI projects in their future careers.

  Vision China's sixth edition brought together international think tanks, policymakers, trade professionals, as well as university students. The event aimed to tell the stories of BRI from multiple perspectives and in a wider global context.

  The event aligned with the second Belt and Road Forum (BRF) for International Cooperation, which was held from Thursday to Saturday. The three-day event convened nearly 40 heads of state or government, along with about 5,000 participants from more than 150 countries and 90 international organizations.
