Belt and Road Initiative is entering a new stage of all-round pragmatic

considers it necessary to putinto the OBOR Initiative concrete projects
and programs for developing moderncommunication and infrastructure. 
Ibelieve that first of all, it means to build advanced infrastructure
fortransport and logistics to allow voluminous flows of goods, services,
investmentand capital, including conceptual and cultural exchanges on
projects.  Uzbekistan is now confronted in itsdevelopment with such a
problem that owing to a series of territorial andhistorical factors, the
infrastructural development of the region is resultedfrom political
interest rather than economic reasons.  It is imperative for us to make
up for theabsence in transregional infrastructure. Uzbekistan suggests
that it is necessary to establish a single plan forus involving
cooperation in building logistic communication that links CentralAsia
with Russia and Europe.  In thisregard, we should explore on building
railways that link China,Kyrgyzstan,Uzbekistan and Afghanistan that go
further afield to Pakistani andIranian ports of the Indian Ocean.


our view, to include railway lines toAfghanistan in the OBOR will
enable us to further integrate transregionalcommunication and logistic
infrastructures, facilitate economic recovery ofvarious countries and
enhance peace and stability of the region and the worldat large.


安耐·伯纳 Anne Berner

芬兰交通与通信部部长 Minister of Transport and Communications, Finland


Finland is a small country, inconsideration of our geological location,
we regard it very important toestablish connectivity by cross border
routes either at sea route or over landroute or in the air.


the future, we are hopeful that Finlandwill become a busy hub of
international aviation, from which passengers canhave easy access to
other European destinations.


accelerate connectivity between Europeand Asia, Finland has conducted a
series of studies.  The best solution to digital connectivity isto
build a Eurasian digital cable,along the line of which many countries
havedisplayed great interest in launching the project.  We hope that it
is an open project, guided bythe market and with crucial role to play
for governments. We also hope that allcountries participating in the
project will be supportive of the project, whichmay quicken the pace of a
paradigm shift, bringing about great change andbenefit to global
community, enterprises and the people.

is a country of 17000 islandswith a coastline of 8500 kilometers. Such
natural advantages are important for attracting investment. Atpresent,
the greatest challenge facing us is high economic cost, mainlyincurring
in logistics and communication, especially communication form islandto
island.  At the moment, spending oncommunication takes up 25 percent of
GDP, comparing to 15 percent for othercountries on the average. 
Therefore,between either cities or islands or facilities, connectivity
needs continuedimprovement.  At present, the objectivein infrastructural
construction is to build 2600 kilometers of highways, 5000kilometers of
tolled superhighways, 50 ports and 3500 kilometers of railroadsby 2019,
on top of which construction of optical fiber and optical cableprojects
are also included.


high-speed railway from Jakarta toBandung is very important for
connectivity between Indonesia and the rest ofthe ASEAN region. 
Expected to completeby the end of 2019, this project will better serve
the connection between thetwo metropolises.  Meanwhile, we trustsuch
connectivity will also reduce development imbalance between major
citiesand small and medium cities.

Belt and Road Initiatives advocated byChina intend to improve
connectivity primarily by developing infrastructure andthereby promote
sustainable economic development of Asia and the world. It isJapan's
view that infrastructure promoted under the Belt and Road
initiatives,developed in a manner consistent with international
standards and utilized withassurance of open and fair access to all
countries, would benefit all thecountries concerned and the enterprises
involved in the initiatives.

transport corridors and logistic system, which are anindispensable part
of the OBOR.


OBOR Initiative proposed by China hasgained broad traction with
positive responses and support from variouscountries the world over,
countries that are making efforts to improvecommunication and transport
infrastructures, increase transport efficiency,attract new goods, new
technologies and new investment and buildinfrastructures in major
areas.  The OBORInitiative is of high feasibility and great potential,
being a comprehensivesupply chain that links Asia and Europe.

integration, which includes thetransport corridor between Europe and
West China, the high-speed railroadbetween Moscow and Beijing, the
Natural Gas Pipeline from Siberia to China andthe Sea Lane across Arctic

more countries that the cost of renewable energy ison the decline, and
so is that of power generation based on renewable energy.  At the same

amount of electricity in the network isbased on renewable energy.

challengesfacing the world today, where in developed countries the
penetration rate ofinternet has reached more than 80 percent whereas in
developing countries thefigure is merely 40 percent. In many other
places there is no internet at alland therefore it is our hope that such
a digital gap can be bridged by the OBORinitiative.

recent years, the membership of theRailway Cooperation Organization has
expanded to 28 countries and regions. Withsuch an extensive sweep, we
have been able to increase the total amount ofcooperation by 1.5 folds.


present, between the Asian-Pacificregion and the Eurasian region a
combined annual traffic volume on the railscan reach 5.5 billion tons,
which is a very large figure.  At present, we are conducting a series
ofcooperation to shorten hauling time and distance.  Cooperation between
our member statesfeatures that the hauling process may cross the
boundaries of many countriesand undergo the formalities of custom
inspection of goods hauled by differentcountries.  Therefore, we hope
tosimplify such formalities through cooperation.
