Deputy Chairman Xu WU considered that TusHoldings could promote the “Belt and Road” from three aspects: firstly taking science park as a platform and foundation, secondly bringing scientific and technological strength to underlying culture by high-tech industry, and thirdly supporting it with the strength of finance. Helen Lee held the view that USA, China and EU were the three poles in the world at present, and, considering the development speed and economic scale of China, China had the qualification to propose the great initiative of “Belt and Road”. Feng LIU believed that human development might face a point of sublimation and a crossroad; the “Belt and Road” initiative proposed by President Xi could help to rebuild the basic global layout. Xiao SHEN suggested that “from the aspect of scientific and technological innovation, the ‘Belt and Road’ relates to not only capacity output and infrastructure construction, but also joint building of a greater scientific and technological circulation system. For example, a better mechanism may be built to support scientific and technological innovation under the framework of the ‘Belt and Road’ initiative, including the development of intelligent connected vehicle to which TusHoldings is paying close attention.” Dongming LI expressed that although the “Belt and Road” initiative brought good development opportunities, the current development was still fragmented, and effective clustering development had not formed; all the countries involved should still strengthen cooperation to form stronger force and march forward together.
