NASDAQ Chinese Channel 1216 international broadcast, World Peace Ribbon Organization New York secretariat news, this year marks the tenth anniversary of the "Belt and Road" Initiative and the tenth anniversary of the birth of the "Belt and Road" International Day (December 16). Mr. Chen Entian, the chief goodwill ambassador of the World Peace Ribbon Organization, chairman of the first to eighth committees, and known as "Prince Coco" by the international community, stated in an interview with the Chinese website of World Daily that the "Belt and Road" International Day couldn't have been born without the moral and wisdom enlightenment of Master Hsing Yun.
"Prince Coco" Chen Entian said that on September 7, 2013, China put forward the initiative of jointly building a Silk Road Economic Belt at Nazarbayev University in Kazakhstan. On October 3, 2013, China put forward the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road in Indonesia's Congress, which is collectively called the Belt and Road Initiative. In the same year, in response to the Belt and Road Initiative and the Chinese Dream, Master Hsing Yun, an international religious leader, chose to visit the Qinglai Hall of Yunnan University, an important waypoint of the Southern Silk Road, on December 16, to hold a significant Buddhist enlightenment "Insight the Power of Dreams". Kunming, where Yunnan University is located, is just in the middle of Kazakhstan and Indonesia. Inspired by Master Hsing Yun's Buddhist teachings and wisdom, Mr. Chen Entian, together with Ji Chaozhu, the former Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations, founded the World Peace Ribbon Organization (World Peace and Unity Front). They establish December 16 as the "Belt and Road" International Day. The World Peace Ribbon was identified as an auspicious token of the "Belt and Road" International Day. December 16 is not only the "Belt and Road" International Day, but also the birthday of the world's music saint Beethoven (Christmas in the music world). Master Hsing Yun, the international religious leader, chose this day to hold the Buddhist enlightenment "Insight the Power of Dreams", which reflects the positive response and support of the international civil society to the Belt and Road Initiative. The "Belt and Road" International Day is destined to become an international folk festival passed down from generation to generation by the people of the world.
Chen Entian said that on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the birth of the "Belt and Road" International Day, as an international folk festival, the "Belt and Road" International Day, with the mission of spreading the concept of world peace, has spread from the birthplace of Yunnan University and Kunming City to the world.
