The Belt and Road Initiative is a great effort for building a community committed to the common good for humanity. The Initiative will also aid the recovery of the global economy, helping to generate greater prosperity and creating win-win situations. In reading this book, one can begin to see the independent economic logic of the Belt and Road Initiative.
