The city of Sanya on Hainan held the Second Scientific Forum "Southeast Asia - China"

EbeDCAAThe resort city of Sanya on the southern coast of Hainan Island held the Second Scientific forum "Southeast Asia - China", dedicated to the promotion of international projects in the cultural, humanitarian, trade and economic spheres.

This was reported by the newspaper "Sanya Zhibao".
According to the publication, the event took place both in person and online. It was attended by experts from the Academy of Social Sciences of China, the People's University of China, Nanjing University, the Chinese Association for Southeast Asian Studies.
The central theme of the forum, as noted, was multilateral cooperation in accordance with the provisions of the "One Belt, One Road" initiative, as well as the intensification of scientific and technical cooperation between the countries of the region with the involvement of the Hainan Free Trade Port. The event also discussed such important issues as China's foreign policy strategy in the face of major changes in the international arena, the development of ocean resources.
In recent years, several research structures have been established in Hainan to explore opportunities for expanding cooperation between the PRC and the countries of the region. It is assumed that Hainan will play an increasingly important role in Beijing's interaction with the members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. They account for a significant share of China's foreign trade turnover.
Hainan occupies an advantageous geographical position in the region and has a large untapped potential in the field of transport communications. The Central Government of the People's Republic of China plans to actively involve the province in the projects of the Maritime Silk Road Initiative of the XXI century. Among the important areas of cooperation that are expected to contribute to economic growth and strengthen stability are cooperation with Southeast Asian countries in the field of fisheries, the implementation of joint programs for the development of public education, environmental protection and coordination of efforts to conduct effective rescue operations at sea, writes TASS.
