More than a thousand years ago, Zhang Qian, a Chinese imperial envoy, set out on a westward expedition covering thousands of miles, laying the foundation of the Silk Road. Ten years ago, the “Silk Road Economic Belt” and the “21st Century Maritime Silk Road” were envisioned to revitalize ancient trading routes, which came to be known as the Belt and Road Initiative.
Over the past decade, the Belt and Road Initiative has been implemented with fruitful results, its grand road map at the planning stage translated into tangible projects. To show how the Belt and Road Initiative has transformed BRI countries in the past ten years, Sounthern Finance Omnimedia Corp. produced a special documentary The BRI: A Decade On. Join SFC on a journey across continents and oceans.
Indonesia marks our second destination in the documentary The BRI: A Decade On. From ancient times, Indonesia has played a pivotal role as a key crossroads along the Maritime Silk Road. It was here that the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road Initiative was initially introduced in 2013. Throughout the past decade, Indonesia's involvement in the BRI has not only bolstered its economic connectivity but also forged even closer bonds between China and Indonesia. As Indonesia continues to navigate the ever-changing currents of development, the journey of China and Indonesia stands as a testament to mutual respect, cooperation, and prosperity.
