Released on May 11 in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, the Annual Report on Silk Road Economic Belt (2017) focuses on the key points of the Silk Road Economic Belt construction and provides suggestions for national and local development.

The report covers such issues as the opening up practice in typical inland areas along the Silk Road Economic Belt. It proposes a co-building mechanism of the strategic hubs along the belt to collaboratively transition. Centering on the new model of opening-up system of western inland hubs, the report points out that inland areas need to innovate the opening-up system based on the principle of collaborating transition and openness, while establishing a hierarchical network public governance mechanism. It also analyses the development of western cross-border e-commerce as well as the necessity of building free trade zones.
