One belt, one road long time, Astana, April, Xinhua news agency, Kazakhstan, April. The “one belt and one road” helps the Kazakhstan scholar “Mai Meng” to come true. Xinhua News Agency reporters that the quality of wheat is good and the output is high, but because it is a landlocked country, Kazakhstan has long been unable to find the way to export wheat to Southeast Asia. Gulinar shaimelgenova is an international relations researcher. One of her research topics is how to export Kazakhstan’s wheat to Southeast Asian countries. China’s “one belt, one road” initiative has seen Shai Mel G Nova turn a corner. “In 2013, working at Nazarbayev University, I was fortunate to witness the Silk Road Economic Belt initiative put forward by Chinese leaders here.” She said. The one belt, one road initiative, proposed a new economic policy of “bright path” in Kazakhstan the year before, and tried to improve the transport infrastructure so that Kazakhstan’s goods could get more export channels. Since then, one belt, one road has been linked up with the road of light, and a series of China EU trains have been opened in Kazakhstan. With the opening of the China Europe train, shaimelgenova saw a turning point in exporting Kazakh wheat to Southeast Asian countries. Since then, one belt, one road initiative, has published dozens of papers. Shai Mel G Nova believes that the one belt, one road initiative constitutes a New Oriental perspective for global development and complementary advantages. One belt, one road, was founded in 2015. Sha I May Erg Nova was invited to establish the Kazakhstan China Research Center and be the director of the center. After the establishment of the center, the first work promoted by shaimelgenova was to send a team to China to investigate the new path of Kazakhstan’s wheat export. They went to Lianyungang, Tianjin, Shanghai and other major ports to investigate and study issues such as promoting further cooperation between Kazakhstan and China, simplifying customs clearance procedures and reducing transportation costs, and wrote reports to submit to the Kazakh government. On February 5, 2017, a grain train carrying hundreds of tons of Kazakh wheat entered Lianyungang. Here, this batch of wheat is shipped to Vietnam. This is the first time that Kazakhstan’s wheat transit from China to Southeast Asia market, marking that Kazakhstan has established a large channel for grain export to the East. “This provides Kazakhstan with new opportunities to export to Asian countries and good prospects for expanding its economic and trade relations with foreign countries.” Wheat export is just one of many research projects of Kazakhstan China Research Center. China has one belt, one road team. The center has been leading the team to cooperate with foreign think tanks in China, the United States and Australia, and has held regular round table meetings to submit the “one belt and one road” Research Report to the Kazakhstan government. In these reports, one belt, one road, is often written by Shai Mel G Nova. “The belt and road” is a new and vast development opportunity and a new mode of international cooperation.
