Prof. Worsak Kanok-Nukulchai, President of the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), has called for the creation of a new platform of universities in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) to prepare a new breed of intellectuals, who can emerge as globally responsible citizens for the sustainable future of mankind.

The AIT President was delivering the keynote address at the Opening Session of the "Belt and Road Initiative (BRI): President's Forum on Innovation and Entrepreneurship Education" hosted by Shaanxi Provincial People's Government. Prof. Worsak spoke on the topic "Global Competence for the Sustainable Future of Humankind."

The forum was organized by Xidian University, and it was attended by Presidents of 105 Chinese universities and 77 universities from 41 other countries and territories. The event concluded with the proclamation of the "Xi'an Declaration for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Education," with reference to BRI.

The AIT President also delivered the concluding speech at the international conference on "China's ties with the Outside World through the Belt and Road Initiative," which was organized by the Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU) on 23-24 September 2017. Earlier, during his visit to AIT in early September, the Chairman of Board of Trustees of NPU, Dr. Zhang Wei had invited Prof. Worsak to deliver the concluding speech at the event.

Prof. Worsak stressed that in the spirit of "mutual trust", BRI could provide a golden opportunity for BRI scholars to bridge the cultural divide, and help solve global issues such as climate change for the sustainable future of mankind.
