(ECNS) -- The railways that China and other "Belt and Road Initiative"(BRI) participating countries have built connect each other, and trains loaded with goods speed along on them like galloping horses.  

From the China-Europe freight trains to the Mombasa-Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway, the BRI has established a broad platform for cooperation, where China's high-quality development drives the world.  

Over the past decade, the BRI has galvanized nearly $1 trillion, launched over 3,000 cooperation projects, and lifted nearly 40 million people out of poverty. The total import and export volume between China and other BRI countries has exceeded $19 trillion, with cumulative two-way investments surpassing $380 billion.   

The BRI also emphasizes the harmonious coexistence of humans and nature. Many passages and bridges along the Mombasa-Nairobi railway were set up to ensure the free movement of wildlife.  

Based on consultation and collaboration for shared benefits, the initiative continues to foster cooperative development among participating countries. Roads to shared development, ports for common prosperity, and bridges of friendship continue to emerge in these countries.
