It was in 2013 that the Chinese President Xi Jinping introduced the 'One Belt, One Road' initiative, a plan to link China with Asia, Africa and Europe via a network of ports, railways and roads, IRNA reported.
To deal with the process of developing the regional countries' port cities in line with revival of Silk Road, Iran will be an economically ideal choice because of its southeastern Chabahar Port as a great trade zone for international interactions.
Iran can also deliver its domestic products to the target markets more quickly through the new Silk Road.
So, Iran, enjoying appropriate capacities to transfer energy to South and East Asia through its maritime routes, can also be an important gate for great eastern economic traders like India and China.
The Belt and Road Initiative conference will work for three days.
