Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says Belt and Road Initiative will successfully generate new opportunities in the global trade growth thereby creating high end and rapid developing economies.

He points out that all the countries that are affiliated to this program should determinedly be united to make it a success as its benefits are reaching the far ends of those member countries.

Prime Minister Wickremesinghe expressed these views during a round table discussion held on the sidelines of the Belt and Road Initiative summit held in Beijing.

The premier further said Sri Lanka is attempting to use all geographical situations to strengthen its ties with many countries thereby focusing to position Sri Lanka as the hub of the Indian Ocean.

Addressing the discussion, Chinese President Xi Jinping stated that no single country can overcome the emerging global challenges in isolation, therefore all countries should hold hand in hand to achieve their goals.
