“The main essence of the BRI is about viable connectivity. First is about policy coordination, second is about facility connectivity.
“The third is about unimpeded trade, the fourth is about financial integration, and the last is about people to people bound. And I hope that everybody here today you could remember the five connectivity.

“There have been great achievements of BRI in the past eight years. Now we have 140 countries that have signed this document with the Chinese government, Nigeria is also part of the country.

“I also took part in the drafting of this document and I am very happy that Nigeria has signed this document in the year 2018.
“So trade is really important for BRI partners. We need Chinese products, we also need products from the BRI partners,” Cui said.

“In this strategy, the 5GIST means 5 goals, 5Is, 5Ss, and 5Ts which is the China-Nigeria GDP strategy. The GDP means growth, development, and progress.
“The first five goals are; political support, economic cooperation, military collaboration, international coordination, and people-to-people bond.
“The second five are; first is about infrastructure, second is ICT, third is about Industry; the railway is key for the Nigerian people.

“Without industry, we cannot get rich, we cannot get strong, we cannot create more jobs, we cannot create income. So, we believe that industry in the agriculture, manufacturing, how they can be implemented.

“The fourth is about investment in agriculture, aquaculture, manufacturing, oil and gas. So I think we need investments and how to attract Foreign Direct Investments.
“The third S is; on security, we need structure, we need speed because we cannot be lagging in the 21st century. we need synergy and supervision.
“The fourth T; are thoughts, we need to exchange our thoughts on the government and peoples level, we have talents, treasure, technology, and tradition,” Cui said

Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
