Freight train boosts ties with Europe

China Daily European Weekly - - BUSINESS -

The China-Europe ex­press freight train has more than dou­bled the num­ber of trips it made in 2016 and has played an im­por­tant role in boost­ing trade ties be­tween the two sides. It made 3,673 trips in 2017, ex­ceed­ing the to­tal in the pre­vi­ous six years, says Yan Pengcheng, a spokesman for the Na­tional De­vel­op­ment and Re­form Com­mis­sion. Ini­ti­ated in March 2011, the ser­vice is ex­pected to in­crease to 5,000 trips an­nu­ally by 2020.
