Attaching great importance to the implementation of economic, social and infrastructure cooperation projects of great significance to Kyrgyzstan, the two leaders spoke highly of the memorandum of Understanding on promoting investment cooperation in green development signed during this meeting.

Xi added that the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is the main driving force for economic, social and cultural cooperation projects between Kyrgyz and Chinese businesses. In addition, two heads of state believe that the BRI cooperation should give full play to the potential of transportation and transit transportation, and the development of existing and new routes. Among the most anticipated projects is the construction of new railway lines including the China-Kyrgyzstan-Uzbekistan railway. The railway is of great significance to the economic and social development of the region, the Chinese leader stressed out.
