New Western Land-sea Trade Corridor Maintains Robust Momentum


From January to May, the new western land-sea corridor freight train service maintained strong growth, sending 310,000 TEUS of cargo, up 85,000 TEUS year-on-year or 37.7 percent, according to China Railway.

Since this year, further boosted by the implementa­tion of the Regional Comprehens­ive Economic Partnershi­p (RCEP) and other policies, the western land-sea corridor constructi­on ushered in new opportunit­ies. More sea-rail transport lines were opened, and the transporta­tion of characteri­stic products such as sugar from India and automobile­s from the Middle East increased, making the corridor a powerful engine in driving economic and social developmen­t in China’s western region.
