ASEAN Community to propel “Belt and Road” initiative: Chinese FM

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Tuesday that the forthcoming establishment of ASEAN Community by the end of this year will give fresh impetus to China’s “Belt and Road” initiative.
Wang said China and many Southeast Asian countries were connected to each other through the ancient maritime Silk Road.
The Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2013, are aimed at reviving the ancient trade routes that span Asia, Africa and Europe.
