An international forum on June 15 proposed establishing Heilongjiang Province as a significant platform for cooperation between China and Northeast Asian countries. Jin Meihua, secretary-general of the Northeast Asia Studies Institute at the Jilin Provincial Academy of Social Sciences, said the “Belt and Road” initiative offers opportunities to remove obstacles to cooperation in Northeast Asia and construct a regional cooperation mechanism. Zhang Fenglin, deputy director of the Northeast Asia Institute at the Heilongjiang Provincial Academy of Social Sciences, said the construction of a China-Mongolia-Russia Economic Corridor and the Heilongjiang Land and Maritime Silk Road Economic Belt will tap the great potential of Heilongjiang’s economic and trade cooperation with Japan, South Korea and Mongolia. Zhang suggested strengthening cooperation in environmental, service and emerging industries while encouraging Japan and South Korea to invest in Heilongjiang’s processing industry.
