Promote the joint construction of the "Belt and Road" and accelerate the construction of a powerful transportation country


To build the “Belt and Road”, interconnection is the key, and transportation must be the first. In the six years since the "Belt and Road" initiative was proposed, the transportation industry has carefully studied and implemented General Secretary Xi Jinping's important discussion on the joint construction of the "Belt and Road" and the central government's decision-making and deployment. Breakthroughs have made important progress in the fields of railways, highways, water transportation, civil aviation, and postal services. A large number of major projects in overseas transportation infrastructure have been successfully implemented, and the "six corridors, six roads, multiple countries, and multiple ports" interconnection structure has basically taken shape.

Recently, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council issued the "Outline for the Construction of a Powerful Country for Transport" ("Outline"), proposing "to build an interconnected, global-oriented transportation network" and made "the six major international economic cooperation corridors along the Silk Road Economic Belt" as the main body. To promote the interconnection with infrastructures such as railways, highways, waterways, oil and gas pipelines in neighboring countries, and promote the construction of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, and to promote the high-quality development of the “Belt and Road” interconnection and speed up the construction of the world ’s leading transportation Powerful country is of great significance.

First, it accords with the priority direction of jointly building the “Belt and Road” initiative. General Secretary Xi Jinping attaches great importance to the important role of transportation in promoting the interconnection of the “Belt and Road” and pointed out: Interconnection is a road at the foot of the road. No matter it is a road, railway, airway or network, where is the road, our cooperation will be where is it. In his keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the second "Belt and Road" International Cooperation Summit Forum, he pointed out that China will continue to work with all parties to build a new Asian-European Continental Bridge and other economic corridors, with China-Europe trains, new land and sea channels, The main channel and the information highway are the skeletons, and the interconnection network is based on railways, ports, and pipeline networks. The "Outline" 's deployment of "building an interconnected, global-oriented transportation network" is a powerful measure to implement the spirit of the important speech of General Secretary Jin Ping, and it is highly consistent with the priority direction of co-building the "Belt and Road".

The second is to comply with the common expectations of the international community. Promoting interconnection and interconnection and promoting common prosperity have increasingly become the common consensus and common pursuit of the international community. During the second “Belt and Road” International Cooperation Summit Forum, the leaders of 40 countries and international organizations attending the round table issued a joint communiqué, recognizing that transportation infrastructure is one of the foundations of connectivity and encouraging countries to develop mutual compatibility through development Measures such as integrated transportation, and the development of mutually compatible infrastructure to enhance the connectivity of countries in air, land, and sea. The "Outline" proposed "promoting the interconnection of transportation infrastructure and improving the connectivity of maritime and civil aviation" and other measures, which is a positive response to this initiative.

The third is to meet the essential characteristics of a powerful transportation country. From the perspective of historical transportation powers, whether it is Ancient Rome in the 1-2 century, Portugal and Spain in the 15th century, the Netherlands in the 17th century, the UK in the 18th-19th century, or the United States today, it all represents the interconnected transportation at that time. The world's leading level, export and maintain its global competitiveness and influence through interconnection.

From the perspective of the development goals of the transportation power, the "Global 123 Express Cargo Circle" proposed by the "Outline" (1 day domestic delivery, 2 days delivery from neighboring countries, 3 days delivery from major cities in the world) must have a high level of Global interconnection can only be achieved as a support.
