Vice President Xie Yuan met with representatives of US organizations Sister Cities International and US Sino Friendship Association, attending the Sub-national Cooperation Thematic Forum of the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (the Second BRF).

Vice President Xie introduced that in line with the trend of prospering sub-national cooperation between China and other countries in recent years, the Second BRF sets up for the first time the Sub-national Cooperation Thematic Forum. During the thematic forum, over 100 delegates from around the world will discuss on the achievements and prospects of the sub-national exchanges and cooperation between China and other countries. Xie hoped that the US participants could make full use of this forum to tap the potential of sub-national cooperation with China by expanding areas of cooperation and exploring future contacts, so as to make positive contribution to the development of China-US sub-national cooperation.

Carol Lopez, chair-elect of Sister Cities International, expressed that the BRI of China draws great attention worldwide. The Fourth US China Sister Cities Conference, which is scheduled in July in Houston, will also make "Belt and Road" as one of its important topics. Lopez expected to learn more about the BRI through the forum.
