The Belt and Road Initiative provides great promise and opportunities for the development of the participating parties. The demand for infrastructure development and the need for industrial cooperation and development are great in the Belt and Road area. Addressing these issues could create many employment opportunities in line with the common efforts and expectations of the international community. China has gained quite a bit of experience since the reform and opening up that could be useful for helping relevant countries, especially the emerging markets and developing countries, to promote development. Leaders of involved countries have gradually reached a consensus on the Belt and Road Initiative. The establishment of the Fund is to take advantage of this opportunity to provide corresponding financial support and services. In this way, the Fund demonstrates the realization of its philosophy of cooperation for mutual benefit.
