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.

Prof. Worsak spoke on the topic "Global Competence for the Sustainable Future of Humankind."

The event concluded with the proclamation of the "Xi'an Declaration for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Education," with reference to BRI.
