Mr. Lu, in a then media interview, expressed the idea that these actions of collaboration between SRCIC and Ukraine communities are only a beginning of more mutual work in future. The Belt and Road Initiative illustrates oriental wisdom for joint development. It is not only a China Dream but a world dream as well. China is the initiator of the Belt and Road. However it calls for the joint efforts of all of us in its construction. SRCIC will further its cooperation with Ukraine business communities to promote trade and investment. Serving as a bridge and super liaison, SRCIC will drive to provide new impetus to the advancement of Ukraine business growth under the Belt and Road Initiative.
