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.
