The National Ethnic Affairs Commission (NEAC) recently released the list of the third batch of the Belt and Road (B&R) international and regional research centers, approving 30 established research centers and 16 under development. FNU’s Philippine Research Center is one of the 30 to have been approved, which marks another breakthrough in building high-level platforms for the B&R Initiative.
It is reported that NEAC has so far approved the construction of 60 B&R international and regional research centers. Up to now, two international and regional research centers in Fujian have been approved.
