Reaching consensus, respecting differences and creating real benefits to real people are key to ensuring the success of the “One Belt, One Road” initiative, according to former vice foreign minister He Yafei as he discusses obstacles and challenges to the ambitious China-led international platform of economic collaboration.
About "He Talks"
Mr. He Yafei has always been a person in the know. As one of the top diplomats with China's Foreign Ministry during the first decade of the 21st century, Mr. He directed China's teams in multilateral international negotiations, including the climate change talks, and dealt directly with the U.S. State Department at key junctures in bilateral ties. After his retirement from the public service, he became a sought-after public speaker, an academic on globalization and China's diplomacy, and a strong advocate for a robust China-US relationship. With "He Talks", we are tapping into this veteran Chinese diplomat-turned academic for his take on issues pertinent to China-US relations.
