The Tbilisi Belt & Road Forum 2017 kicked off Tuesday, with Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili saying the forum aims to explore opportunities stemming from the China-proposed Belt and Road (B&R) initiative.

"The revival of the Great Silk Road, encapsulated in the B&R initiative proposed by the president of China, rests upon five fundamental principles: peace, prosperity, openness, innovation, and exchange of civilizations," Kvirikashvili said in a welcome speech delivered at the event.

He highlighted Georgia's strategic location at the crossroads of the East and the West and the importance of the B&R initiative.
