UCLG ASPAC Committee on the Belt and Road Local Cooperation (BRLC) was inaugurated at Thematic Session on People-to-People Connectivity at the first Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing. BRLC is founded, within the framework of UCLG ASPAC, by Hangzhou Municipal Government and the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC) with the Secretariat located permanently in Hangzhou.

With the mission of Openness, Cooperation, Sharing and Win Win, BRLC, based on the UCLG ASPAC, is committed to integrating the Belt and Road Initiative into exchange and cooperation among local governments with various practical exchange and cooperative programmes and activities; to building a cooperation platform to share experience and resources for mutual benefits and win-win outcomes in the fields of economic development, culture and education, urban governance, rural development and internet economy, thus achieving “people-to-people bonds” and “state-to-state relations”. Meanwhile, BRLC will form a work pattern which is dominated by the Committee and participated by social forces so as to utilise social resources and integrate forces from all parties to jointly conduct international exchange and cooperation.
BRLC warmly welcomes members of UCLG ASPAC and other regions of UCLG, cities along the Belt and Road route, Hangzhou’s sister cities and other related cities or organisations.
