China welcomes the willingness demonstrated by the French side to participate in the Belt and Road initiative, foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said on Tuesday in Beijing.

Geng made the remarks on June 19 when asked to comment on a report released by the French Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Armed Forces concerning the Belt and Road initiative (BRI).

The report, written by senator Pascal Allizard and entitled ‘Is BRI a simple economic label or new world order for France?’, suggested France view China’s policies with a “neither naïve nor aggressive” attitude and take a more active part in the initiative and play an important guiding role at the EU-China leintroducTRADEINVESTME among countries along the ancient Silk Road trade routes from Asia to Europe and Africa.

There report features three parts, introducing the background of BRI, offering an outlook for the future, and finally the ambiguous and suspicious contents in the proposal.

The report was described by Xinhua, a Chinese state-run news agency, as, “objective and rigorous on the whole," and not playing on notions such as the "China threat”.

“We are willing to explore the specific ways to conduct cooperation with France and other European countries under the framework of the BRI, effectively synergise development strategies, expand converging interests and better achieve mutual benefit and win-win outcomes,” the spokesperson said.

In April it was reported that national EU ambassadors to Beijing had compiled a critical report on China’s BRI in preparation for the upcoming EU-China summit in July.

The report described the project as designed to hamper free trade and further Chinese interests. Beijing branded the report as inaccurate.

The Belt and Road Initiative was proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2013 to boost trade links and infrastructure investment among countries along the ancient Silk Road trade routes from Asia to Europe and Africa.

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
