To further implement the State strategy of building the Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road, give full play to Shenzhen as a pioneer in reform and opening up, and build the special economic zone into a gateway along the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road, we put forward the guidelines as follows:
The Belt and Road Initiative is of great importance to the implementation of China's great-power diplomacy and peripheral diplomacy strategy and the construction of a new pattern of all-round opening up with coordination of sea and land transport and cooperation between the East and West. President Xi Jinping has called for Guangdong Province and Shenzhen to play a vital role in the program. As window of China's reform and opening up and located in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Big Bay Area and along the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road, Shenzhen has been cooperating closely with countries along the Belt and Road. To become a gateway along the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road, Shenzhen will step up the development of the bay area economy, which features developed industries. Strong functions, opening up, conglomeration and spillover, accelerate regional cooperation in the pan-Pearl River area, and push the coordinative development of countries along the route, regional coordination, benefit integration, interc Onnection and intercommunication. It is a responsibility of Shenzhen and a must for the city to seek a new development mode. Shenzhen has to continue to be a pioneer in the country's Belt and Road Initiative.
