China will follow the principles of wide consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits in its One Belt, One Road (OBOR) initiative and also promote connectivity in terms of national development strategies and relevant institutions with the countries along the route. Improving the international arbitration system, one of the most flexible and efficient dispute settlement methods, will play a big part in these integration efforts.
