In the document Approval of The State Council on “The Supporting Policies of the Development and Opening up of Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Cooperation Zone of Shenzhen” (Guo Han  No. 58, June 27, 2012), a Qianhai Cooperation Forum (QCF) was proposed for establishment to facilitate the exchange of ideas and strengthen cooperation between Qianhai and its partners in modern service industry development. We hope that we shall play a role in organizing the QCF which is expected to be an annual event involving high-level participants from the world in general and from the Belt and Road countries in particular. This is also in concordance with the Central Government’s Vision and Actions on Jointly Building Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st Century Maritime Silk Road promulgated in March 2015. The Forum will provide a significant platform for discussion and communication on development issues among representatives from the government, academia, and business sectors.
