“Silk Road of in­no­va­tion”

ChinAfrica - - China Report -

man­age­ment is key to ef­fec­tively im­ple­ment­ing the Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive. At the Silk Road Fo­rum in War­saw on June 20, 2016, Pres­i­dent Xi em­pha­sized the unique role tal­ent devel­op­ment can play in lead­ing the way in this re­gard. It is im­por­tant, he pointed out, to pro­mote re­search on cour­ses of ac­tion and means to achieve the goals of the ini­tia­tive, so as to in­form de­ci­sion­mak­ing with re­gard to strate­gic plan­ning and align­ment, pol­icy co­or­di­na­tion, and the de­sign of mech­a­nisms. Also cru­cial is ef­fec­tive dis­sem­i­na­tion of in­for­ma­tion about the guid­ing prin­ci­ples of the ini­tia­tive and in­ter­pre­ta­tion of poli­cies so as to bet­ter reach out to the peo­ple.

Ad­dress­ing the Leg­isla­tive Cham­ber of the Uzbek Supreme Assem­bly on June 22, 2016, Xi pro­posed the es­tab­lish­ment of a tech­ni­cal co­op­er­a­tion al­liance un­der the Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive to fa­cil­i­tate train­ing and ca­pac­ity build­ing.

The ob­jec­tive of a Silk Road of in­no­va­tion is to en­hance tal­ent devel­op­ment and ex­change of ex­per­tise in re­sponse to any short­fall of skilled per­son­nel in coun­tries along the pro­posed Belt and Road.

Any new progress in im­ple­ment­ing the ini­tia­tive will, to be sure, be ac­com­pa­nied by new chal­lenges. Over­com­ing th­ese chal­lenges re­quires brain­power and ex­per­tise. It is there­fore vi­tal for coun­tries to learn from each other and join hands in find­ing so­lu­tions.
