first environmental forum held in the “one belt one road” context
the chinese economy is now more closely connected with the world than ever before. in 2013, president xi jinping put forward the strategic “one belt one road” (obor) initiatives. china and the arab states are natural partners in implementing this conception.
in addition to the ever-stronger china-arab economic and trade ties, china has strengthened environmental and ecological cooperation with the arab states. in june 2014, china and members of the league of arab states (las) signed the china-arab states cooperation forum action plan for 2014 to 2016,. the action plan stresses that the two parties should strengthen mechanisms for further environmental cooperation and communication.
building on this momentum, the hosts and organizers of the forum want to make the best of the upcoming forum and hope it will give impetus to the concerted effort in building the green silk road and become a platform for china-arab environmental cooperation.
