Implementation of Chinese infrastructure project Silk Road, designed to strengthen economic cooperation and enhance trade between China and Europe would be unthinkable without Ukraine`s participation, Chinese Ambassador to Ukraine Du Wei said at a Kyiv forum.
”Without Ukraine, the implementation of the [Silk Road] initiative would be incomplete, even unthinkable. Therefore, Ukraine was
one of the first of more than 60 countries to have joined the [Silk] Road,” the ambassador said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukraine will join China`s newly-established Association for Promotion of Economic Cooperation ”Silk Road”, along with 20 other countries. To launch the project, Chinese funds have already collected nearly RMB 300 billion, or some $46 billion.
