It wins support from governments of 178 countries and various international organizations with its philosophy and innovation, credibility, influence, and execution, and offers an international network for governments, NGOs, and private sector. It strives to strike a balance between expressing love and making profits.  Li also introduced to president Zhu the international expert meeting on the Interactive Atlas of Cultural Interactions along the Silk Roads held by UNESCO from May 31 to June 2 and the joint project initiated by the foundation and the China Internet Network Information Center – Belt and Road Official Website of www.

Founded in 2009 in Yang Zhou, the WCCO is a non-profit international organization formed by a number of canal cities, economic or cultural institutions worldwide, and individuals. It is registered in the Ministry of Civil Affairs and is under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture. It has 89 members, including cities, institutes, enterprises, and individuals, spreading over Asia, Europe, Africa, and America. 

According to preliminary statistics, there are around 516 canals in the world, distributing in 51 countries and regions, among which 445 canals are in countries along the Belt and Road, and there are over 200 canal cities worldwide. Canals play very important roles in cultural inheritance, transportation, leisure and tourism, environmental protection, and sometimes even geopolitics.

First, vigorously boost economic development of canal cities under the Belt and Road Initiative by filming videos of canal cities and telling stories of Chinese canals to the world; Second, form an association of world’s ancient canal cities and towns and advance the development of these places by combining tourism with local culture and reviving ancient towns with the internet; Third, use BJIPCF’s public offering fund qualification to establish special public welfare fund for WCCO, with which the foundation and the WCCO can jointly raise fund from society.
