The second Belt and Road Forum attracted leaders, including heads of state and government from nearly 40 countries. The Belt and Road (B&R) Initiative, proposed by China in 2013, seeks to build a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient Silk Road trade routes to seek common development and prosperity.
A total of 126 countries and 29 international organisations have signed cooperation documents with China on the initiative.
