Vice-Premier Wang Yang on Thursday called for countries in Eurasia to boost cooperation and make the Silk Road economic belt benefit the people in the region.

The Eurasia region has ushered in a historical period with the most intertwined interests and greatest opportunities for cooperation, Wang said in a keynote speech at the 2013 Euro-Asia Economic Forum in Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi province.

President Xi Jinping's proposal to build the Silk Road economic belt has brought unprecedented opportunities for regional development, Wang said, calling on the countries in the Eurasia region to facilitate the project to yield results at an early date and benefit the people.

To enhance cooperation, Eurasian countries need to deepen political mutual trust and focus on development, with countries sharing development experience and allowing each country to explore development paths that suit their national conditions, Wang said.

Wang also urged the countries to open up, fight protectionism in all forms, promote the free movement of people and expand exchanges in education and tourism.
