The National Institute for Strategic Studies of the Kyrgyz Republic is a government think tank, which provides expert and analytical support for effective decision-making of the Kyrgyz government and other state institutions in the field of economics and politics. The Institute conducts a wide range of research projects, including a research project on analysis of relations between China and Central Asian countries, particularly, Kyrgyz Republic. Joint construction of the Silk Road Economic Belt will not only promote the spirit of the ancient Silk Road, which combines the principles of mutual trust, equality, tolerance and win-win results, but will meet current new global trend towards peace, development and cooperation. I do believe that Silk Road Think Tank Network will promote think tank cooperation as well as strengthen mutual trust and understanding in general and contribute to the development of huge potential of the region.
