The Logistics of China’s Open Market
It is a significant move for the Chinese government to organize CIIE to firmly support trade liberalization and actively open the Chinese market to the world.
Russian Railways Logistics ( RZD Logistics) is the largest multimodal logistics operator in Russia, CIS countries and the Baltic states. The company was founded in 2010 with the mission of developing the logistics segment of Russian Railways. Designated by Russian Railways as the sole coordinator of international railroad transit routes, the company is an important partner of China Railway Express (CR Express), an organization within the Belt and Road Initiative framework aiming to connect China to Europe. In anticipation of the company’s arrival at the upcoming China International Import Expo (CIIE) to be held in Shanghai, Viacheslav Valentik, CEO of RZD Logistics, granted an exclusive interview to Chinapictorial (CP).
CP: Why do you think China is organizing CIIE?
Valentik: CIIE will act as an open platform for China to present its national development achievements to participating countries, and it will also shine light on the readiness of all participants to openly discuss major issues related to foreign trade and the world economy.
CP: What will your company show at the event? And what do you expect from CIIE?
Valentik: We are planning to deliver maximum information to both Chinese and international customers on our international logistics services. At this event in Shanghai, we will showcase a number of high-speed delivery services in which we see great potential. For example, we are planning to introduce our Railjet and Panda Land Bridge services.
