Cambodia: Maritime Silk Road benefits countries involved, upholds multilateralism

The 21st-century Maritime Silk Road proposed by China in 2013 benefits countries and people along the route and brings them peace and development opportunities, several experts have said recently.

In promoting the construction of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), China has advocated multilateralism, emphasised win-win and mutual benefits, and shown a strong driving force in global governance, they said.

Cambodian People’s Party spokesman Suos Yara said that it’s vital for countries along the route to jointly build the Belt and Road, “especially to maintain an open and liberal international economic architecture,” and promote “win-win cooperation.”
