Cao Pengcheng, deputy director of BMCTD explained that the fortifying cooperation between the two cities, Beijing and Moscow is one significant measure to put into practice on the Belt and Road Initiative. As we all know that the capital of China is a tourist destination with international appeal.
On one hand, Beijing is an ancient capital with rich history of thousand years and on the other hand it’s an open and inclusive cosmopolitan city of the world. Cao greeted more Russian friends to Beijing so that they can experience the global flavor of the city, its ancient charm; oriental presence and fashionable feel altogether.
