Asian Development Bank to boost cooperation with China
2016/9/22 15:09:06 Source:China Daily

The Asian Development Bank will enhance its cooperation with China, following the Chinese government’s priorities set out in the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20) and the Belt and Road Initiative, an official of the bank said on Sept 19.

Robert Guild, director of the transport division of the ADB’s East Asia department, said: “When we plan our forward pipeline of projects, we work with the National Development and Reform Commission and with the provinces to identify projects that may contribute to the Belt and Road Initiative within China and crossing the borders into neighboring countries.

“ADB has more than 40 developing member countries all through Asia. Also in those countries, we finance projects that may contribute to the Belt and Road Initiative on the other side of the border,” he said, speaking on the sidelines of a transport workshop in Beijing.

The Belt and Road Initiative, proposed by President Xi Jinping, is a development strategy that focuses on connectivity and cooperation among more than 60 countries and regions across Asia, Europe and Africa.

Speaking of the ADB’s priorities in the road sector associated with the initiative for the next three years, Guild said: “We have planned cross-border facilities-things like warehouses, sorting yards, and places for trucks and trains to interchange their cargo-border crossing posts, support to small and medium-sized enterprises and information systems in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region... We also have projects dealing with logistics hubs in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, going to the west.”

In the rail sector, the bank is working in Yunnan province and has three projects coming up, to connect with southern neighboring countries, he added.
