After addressing the Global Think Tank Summit at the May 14-15, 2017 Belt and Road Forum in Beijing, Mrs. Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder and chairwoman of The Schiller Institute, said the following, in an interview with the Shanghai Daily:

"I think the Belt and Road Initiative signifies a revolutionary move to a new epoch of civilization. The idea of having win-win cooperation among nations is the first time that a concrete concept has been offered to overcome geopolitics."

"Since geopolitics was the cause of the two world wars, I think it is a completely new paradigm of thinking, in which an idea proposed by one country, has the national interest in coherence with the interest of humanity as a whole. This has never happened."

"This has instilled tremendous hope among developing nations that they have the chance to overcome poverty and underdevelopment. And I think this is an initiative that will grow until all the continents are connected through infrastructure and development."

The Schiller Institute, in collaboration with the China Energy Fund Committee and The Foundation For the Revival of Classical Culture will be holding a Conference in New York City on Friday, July 7th, 2017. We will bring together farm leaders, agricultural scientists and engineers, and political and diplomatic officials from throughout the USA, leaders from China and from other nations. The task will be to formulate food production and trade policy -- in the wake of the breakthrough Belt and Road Forum in Beijing, May, 2017 -- to immediately and radically EXPAND global food output and feed the world, catalyzed by the most advanced 21st century nuclear and satellite technology.

American economist and scientist Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., a founding member of the Schiller Institute and the original designer, 29 years ago, of the "economic development corridor" concept and policy -- today known as the World Land Bridge -- had stated in his 1983 study, There Are No Limits To Growth, that nations now have the capability, with existing technologies, to produce sufficient high-quality food to feed 25 billion people on a healthy diet!

Furthermore, he pointed out that the development of Africa is of strategic importance -- that is, of strategic importance for Asia and for the whole world's peoples. By the year 2067, Africa will have surpassed Asia as the world' most populous continent. There will be 1 billion youth under the age of 18 there by 2050. Mr. LaRouche elaborated, then, the detailed policies to realize Africa’s potential for becoming both a "breadbasket" for the whole world, and a center of science and space research.

Today, with 100 nations actively participating in China's Belt and Road Initiative, the Road is open to do just that!
