The China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, as it was mentioned in the Report on the Work of the Government, will benefit people along the routes, including Afghanistan, the Afghan ambassador to China said on Sunday.

Ambassador Janan Mosazai made the remarks after hearing the Report on the Work of the Government delivered by Premier Li Keqiang during the annual session of the National People's Congress, the country's top legislature.

"It's especially important for me to see that the report emphasizes the implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative. It's extremely important for us to see the success of the initiative," he said.

The initiative is going to benefit not only the people of Afghanistan and China, but also people of the entire region, which is "very useful", he said.

The ambassador also spoke highly of China's commitment to open economies and free trade, which was reiterated in the report.

"We believe China has a very important role to play now and in the future, not only in terms of economic growth, but also in terms of overall prosperity for the region," he said.
