 Belt and Road Initiative bolster China-Tajikistan ties, says ambassador

MOSCOW, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Cooperation between China and Tajikistan continues to rapidly develop and score results under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative, Chinese Ambassador to Tajikistan Yue Bin said.

China and Tajikistan enjoy a high degree of political mutual trust, laying a solid foundation for the expansion of bilateral relations as well as for trade and economic cooperation, Yue said in a recent interview with Xinhua.

"The two countries do not have any historical issues and actual divergences, and they support each other on issues involving their core interests," the ambassador said.

Tajikistan is the first country in the world to have signed a memorandum with China on building the Silk Road Economic Belt, and Dushanbe pledged to strengthen the synergy between its national development strategy that centers around industrial development and the China-proposed initiative.

"With the impetus of the Belt and Road Initiative, pragmatic cooperation between the two countries is developing rapidly," Yue said.

According to the ambassador, China in recent years has been the main investor in Tajikistan's industrial sector, aiding in the country's economic development.

The investment involves many areas in Tajikistan, including the three priority sectors - energy, transportation and agriculture.

Chinese companies have invested in many large industrial enterprises or projects in Tajikistan, including Zhongtai (Dangara) New Silk Road Textile Industry Co., Ltd., the largest exporter in Tajikistan in terms of foreign currency earnings, and the Dushanbe-2 thermal power station, which solved the country's long-existing problem of power shortages in winter.

"China has become the largest source of investment in Tajikistan, with a cumulative investment of more than 2 billion U.S. dollars," Yue said.

In particular, he underlined that infrastructure connectivity is an important part of the cooperation between China and Tajikistan within the framework of the Belt and Road.

Supported by the Tajik government, many roads in the country have been built by Chinese enterprises or with loans provided by the Chinese government, boosting connectivity among the country's highways in the north and south, Yue said.

The ambassador also praised the solid friendship between the two peoples, especially a booming "Chinese fever."

In addition to Confucius Institutes, some universities and secondary schools are also providing Chinese courses, and the number of Tajik students studying in China is continuously growing.

"Many young people see learning Chinese and studying in China as an important life choice... China has become the second largest destination for Tajik students to study abroad after Russia," Yue said.

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…
