Co-buiding the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, or the Belt and Road Initiative, is an initiative to promote progress in human civilization, and prosperity and development of BRI countries. It has drawn close attention and received positive responses from the international community in general. Uniting the former political leaders, scholars, business and financial institution leaders from BRI countries, the International Finance Forum (IFF) initiates the establishment of the Silk Road International Association (SRIA) to promote strategic development of the Initiative. Upholding the principle of wide consultation, joint contribution, and shared benefits, SRIA is committed to contributing to a community with a shared future for mankind, and building a strategic cooperation and dialogue mechanism that is international, market-oriented and civil society-friendly.
SRIA welcomes all international organizations, enterprises and individuals with the willingness to contribute to the Initiative and share its benefits. With joint efforts, we will pass Silk Road spirits to future generations, and rejuvenate the Silk Road civilization!
