BEIJING, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) –The Silk Road Maritime International Cooperation Forum 2020 kicked off on Tuesday in Xiamen, a coastal city in east China's Fujian Province.

With the theme of "Silk Road Maritime: Route to high-quality development," the forum focused on the vision of "Sharing prosperity through cooperation and connectivity," incorporating multiple activities such as keynote speech, membership awarding, and blue book release.

Based on the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road positioning and advantages, Fujian Province launched the Silk Road Maritime international logistics service in December 2018, aiming to create a new shipping logistics service platform under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

The first Silk Road Maritime International Cooperation Forum was successfully held on September 7, 2019, in Xiamen, which laid a solid foundation for the Silk Road Maritime platform's future development in Fujian.

After a year-long development, Fujian has seen several significant achievements of the Silk Road Maritime in terms of government policies, transportation infrastructure, and international maritime cooperation, which have promoted Fujian's foreign exchange port affairs, logistics, as well as economy and trade.

It is noted that the first batch of six Silk Road Maritime express routes covering Southeast Asia and Europe had been officially launched at the forum.

Meanwhile, another eight enterprises engaged in shipping industry from home and abroad were licensed to join the Silk Road Maritime Alliance, making the total members to 183. Currently, they are operating more than 60 shipping routes which cover major ports in East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, West Asia, Africa, and Europe, presenting growth potential and development prospects of China and the world economy, according to Zhao Long, vice governor of Fujian Province.

The relevant port service specification under the Silk Road Maritime service standard system and the Silk Road Maritime blue book 2020 was also unveiled at the forum.
