2024 Briefing Meeting for Main Partners of BRI International Green Development Coalition held in Beijing


On March 15, the 2024 Briefing Meeting for Main Partners of BRI International Green Development Coalition (BRIGC) was held in Beijing. The meeting aims to share the major progress and outcomes of jointly building the green Silk Road, and to listen to the advice from BRIGC partners on the development of BRIGC, its work progress and 2024 work plan, so that to make joint efforts to implement the major tasks outlined in the area of “promoting green development”, one of the eight major steps China will take to support the joint pursuit of high-quality Belt and Road cooperation.

The meeting was chaired by BRIGC President Mr. Guo Jing. He pointed out that the year 2024 ushers in the second decade of the Belt and Road Initiative. It is also the first year of BRIGC operating as a registered international organization. With continuous support from its partners, BRIGC is expected to play a unique role as an international organization in building a broader platform for dialogues and communications, and conducting more forward-looking studies with wide influence and insights to guide real practice, so as to make positive contributions to promoting BRI green cooperation and high-quality development.

BRIGC Secretary-General Ms. Cui Dandan noted that BRIGC’s development from an initiative into an international organization cannot be achieved without partners’ long-term support. With the purpose to establish itself as an open platform for international cooperation on green development, BRIGC is ready to have in-depth exchanges and cooperation with more partners who are willing to participate in and support green BRI, so as to jointly contribute experiences, pathways and solutions for Belt and Road partner countries to implement the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

BRIGC’s work progress in 2023 and work plan for 2024 were shared at the meeting. BRIGC partners acknowledged the positive role that BRIGC has played in facilitating the development of green Silk Road, and further expressed strong support to and readiness for active participation in BRIGC’s various initiatives such as the BRI Green Innovation Conference and the Green Investment and Finance Partnership (GIFP). They look forward to working with BRIGC in building a closer partnership on green development, and jointly following up the actual needs of Belt and Road partner countries in the fields of energy, infrastructure, investment and financing, so as to push forward practical cooperation on Belt and Road green development.
