The Belt and Road Economic Information Partnership (BREIP), initiated by Xinhua News Agency, was established jointly by news agencies, information service institutions, research institutes and business associations, etc., in the Belt and Road countries and regions on June 27, 2019, with the aim to promote communication and cooperation among the Belt and Road countries and regions through information services. 

By attracting 56 member institutions from 37 Belt and Road countries and regions so far, it aims to increase the information sources of each member institution, and support member institutions to develop their own information services through the information sharing among member institutions. It strives to provide convenient and practical economic information services through cooperation among the member institutions, and help enterprises and other institutions in the Belt and Road countries and regions to find investment and trade opportunities, so as to promote mutual benefits and win-win results.


In April 2019, the BREIP was included in the the list of deliverables of the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation.


The BREIP implements a mechanism of co-contribution and free sharing of economic information content. Member institutions of the BREIP are obliged to provide publishable economic information to the BRInfo, an economic information sharing platform of BREIP, while enjoying the rights to use the content on the platform.

In order to facilitate information sharing and communication under the BREIP, China Economic Information Service (CEIS) under Xinhua News Agency has built BRInfo.

In terms of information uploading, BRInfo supports Email, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), and on-line editing; massive information is automatically classified by AI technology for user retrieval; and the user behavior analysis system can preferentially present the most popular information based on user habits.

To better serve the information sharing and collaborative business development among the member institutions of the BREIP, CEIS has completed the upgrade project of BRInfo, which will be built into an automated aggregation, distribution, and efficient collaborative work platform, and an information platform and an interactive platform for users to provide efficient and accurate services.

Under the BREIP, member institutions share their superior information resources through BRInfo, and do their utmost to provide high-quality information services for all parties involved in the Belt and Road Initiative in a bid to enhance mutual communication and understanding, promote mutual benefits and win-win cooperation in economic and trade fields, facilitate in-depth development of industrial cooperation, and help build a diversified financing system, via information sharing.
