The province will strengthen cooperation with countries and regions along the Belt and Road route in infrastructure construction, trade, education and so on. It will also work to improve the management of joint industrial parks and projects and contribute to the high-quality development of the Belt and Road initiative.

At the opening ceremony, the head of the Guangdong Provincial Publicity Department Fu Hua released a report titled 2018 Report on Guangdong Enterprises Going Global in Building the Belt and Road.

The Party Secretary of Zhuhai City Guo Yonghang said at the opening ceremony that Zhuhai is one of the earliest birthplaces of the Maritime Silk Road. Since the launch of the reform and opening up drive, as one of the earliest special economic zones established in China, Zhuhai has always kept frequent economic, trade and cultural exchanges with countries and regions along the Maritime Silk Road, including ASEAN, South Asian and South Pacific countries. At present, Zhuhai is striving to reinvigorate this special economic zone in the new era. The city is also striving to build Zhuhai into a new economic engine of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and a charming city with unique features, vitality and aspirations.
