BEIJING - A think tank dedicated to the study of the Belt and Road Initiative has been established in Beijing.

The research center is under the administration of the General Office of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC). The co-founders include China Development Bank, Tsinghua University, and the Silk Road Fund.

The center will play a role in strategic research, making suggestions for policy-making, talent training, public opinion guiding and public diplomacy, according to the center.

A launch meeting for the center was held on Thursday in Beijing.

An alliance of think tanks related to the Belt and Road Initiative was formed in Beijing last year.
