The development of winter sports will help meet th

diversified needs of sports fans, which is conducive to soci

al and economic development. Notably, the General Admi

nistration of Sport has issued a document emphasizing the importance of planning in the development of the winter

sports industry. For instance, some departments have made efforts to optimize their resources by building m

ore winter sports venues so they can encourage more people to take up winter sports.

The Beijing municipal government and Hebei provincial gov

ernment have worked out policies to encourage more scho

ol students to play winter sports, and take part in winter sports events on campuses.

The Maputo-Katembe Bridge, opened in November after

 four years of construction, is part of the Maputo Bridge and Link Roads project built by CRBC. It is 187 kilometers long and s

erves as an arterial highway that directly links Maputo to the border with South Africa, to the south.

CRBC mainly undertakes contracting, investment and infrastructure pro

jects, including roads, bridges, ports and railways, and has operations stretching ac

ross more than 60 countries and regions in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas.

“China Road and Bridge Corporation has a wealth of experience in building bridges of the highest quality, including many brid

ges in China that presented even tougher challenges than the Maputo-Katembe Bridge,” Wang said.

www.shlf07.cn

As the bridge was being built the price of land in

Katembe rose, and industrial parks are being planned in the region,” Wang said. “So the bridge will deliver huge economic benefits.”

The project also benefits China. For example, as Mozambique is short of construction materials and equipment, the p

roject has driven the export of more than 70,000 metric tons of steel products and equipment worth $68 million from China.

Even though CRBC was no stranger to building bridges when it took

on the Maputo-Katembe project, particular difficulties were presented by the fact that

both countries have different evaluation systems and standards of construction, Wang said.

The bridge was designed to Chinese standards but subjected to local and European standards, and the company g

ot a German engineering services provider, Gauff, to oversee the project’s quality.

The Belt and Road Initiative is now running for a coupl

of years and has achieved success even in Europe, but it is not finished yet and it should be a win-wi

n situation for China and Europe. China is a very big market and an important global player.

China is Germany’s biggest trading partner, so I think there will be a good future for the two countries.

The Belt and Road Initiative has been a very successful integration proj

ect which is bringing China closer to the world. President Xi Jinping’s speech today is outli

ning that more and more countries can participate, share prosperity, as well as win-win results.

I think that the future will be bright and that especially t

he West needs to better understand what this Belt and Road Initia

tive means and why this shared prosperity can be created and benefit people across the world.aime Irachande Gouv

I think the Belt and Road Initiative is very good . Five

pillars of the initiative are important. The most and best (part) of it, I think, is connectiv

ity and inter-culture exchange, sustainable development agenda, and knowledge transfer.

China is the biggest market in the world. We have enough resources in our country. We want our p

roduct get access to the market and we also want to live in good infrastructure, such as roads, railw

ays, schools, hospitals. I also hope knowledge of China come to our country. We have sea access, and good infra

structure can help our country and neighboring countries get access to the Maritime Silk Road.

China has become the second-largest investor of our count

ry in the past 10 years. It’s investing infrastructure, mining

and agriculture. We have Confucius Institute, facilitate Chinese and Portuguese learning. The Belt and Road

Initiative helps Mozambique boost its industrialization, technology and finance.

President Xi’s speech deeply motivated us and touch

ed our heart. I have the same feeling about world development. The speech really firms our belief in a more intercon

nected and mutually developed world. China’s policy of persisting in reform and opening up is an inspiring polic

y to the world. It will build so many bridges of mutual development for the belt and road region. China is going to main

tain a friendly and peaceful development attitude, and it will help the Belt & Road countries to get investment wit

h high quality. Also, President Xi really showed us a new model of development and investment, focusing on s

ustainable development, green economy, which helps the world to become a better place to live.

More Chinese will take medium- and short-distance trips during the May Day holiday after it was ext

ended to four days and travel time by high-speed train was shortened, according a travel report released recently.

The Labor Day holiday this year has been extended from one to four

By now, China Railway Express (Chengdu) has linked

overseas cities and 14 Chinese cities. It has seven international railway ch

annels and five international rail-sea combined channels to further open up the city.

Six years ago, when the initiative was put forward, Chengdu opened the first direct freight railway to reach L

odz in Poland, bridging a gap to link to Europe. Through the logistics channel, the products and servic

es from Chengdu were exported to meet the demands of countries and regions involved in the initiative. It beca

me an important platform for Chinese companies to go global and for foreign capital to be introduced.

For example, China Railway Express-Skyworth Express, with 41 full containers of televisio

ns and accessories, left Chengdu International Railway Port to reach Europe in March.

The express provided a more convenient channel for Shenzhen-ba

sed television manufacturer Skyworth Group to enter overseas markets.
