Speaking at the session, President Ilham Aliyev thanked President of the People's Republic of China Si Jinping for the invitation.

President Ilham Aliyev emphasized that Azerbaijan and China are partner countries. The head of state noted that the Memorandum of Understanding on joint promotion of the creation of the "Silk Road Economic Pipeline" during the state visit to China in 2015 was signed.

President Ilham Aliyev said Azerbaijan attaches great importance to infrastructure development. Azerbaijan has established a solid infrastructure infrastructure, which serves the interests of both us and our partners. Azerbaijan is also an energy exporting country. Energy exports have created a solid base and foundation for our development. We have used energy resources for the benefit of our people, and have achieved sustainable development. At present, diversification of the economy is one of the main tasks.

The Head of State said that the Alat Sea Trade Port and the new Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway line should be mentioned in the field of transport infrastructure. More than 15,000 kilometers of roads have been built in Azerbaijan and railways have been upgraded. We are particularly active in the East-West transport corridor. We also participate in the development of the North-South transport corridor. Air transport infrastructure has been established in Azerbaijan. So, six international airports have been built. Azerbaijan is the largest trading fleet of 260 vessels in the Caspian Sea. The potential of Azerbaijan in the transport sector is increasing and it creates good opportunities for international cooperation. Unemployment and poverty were reduced by 5% as a result of economic development in Azerbaijan. Transport and energy security are an important element of national security.

The President of Azerbaijan said that "One, road, one road" is not only a transport project, but also a project that promotes peace, security and cooperation.
