On May 11, the country's first "South Asian International Freight Train" was in Lanqicheng. Ten days later, it was loaded with "Made in China" freight trains. After rail and road transport, it will reach Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. This marks Lanzhou's construction of the “Belt and Road”. After opening the “Lanzhou” Central Asia and European freight trains, it has once again taken an important step to open west to south.
The major strategic concept of “One Belt, One Road” has been proposed for more than two years, and countries along the line have responded. Last year, China signed a memorandum of understanding on building the “Belt and Road” with more than 30 countries. Some major “Belt and Road” skeletons have begun to be built, such as the China-Mongolia-Russia Economic Corridor, the China-Indochina Peninsula Economic Corridor, and the New Asia-Europe continent. The Bridge Economic Corridor, China-Central Asia-West Asia Corridor, China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, and the Bangladesh-China-Myanmar Economic Corridor have achieved gratifying results. For CEIBS, in the past, the freight between China and Europe was mainly transported by air, sea and road. The cost of air and road transportation was high, and shipping took a long time. With its short distance, high speed and high safety, and the advantages of safe, fast, green and environmentally friendly, and affected by the natural environment, CEIBS has become the backbone of land transportation in international logistics.
The prospects for international freight transportation are very broad and have a very high price/performance ratio. As we all know, in the past, our logistics trade to South Asia and Southeast Asia was mainly completed by sea. The railway freight train opened this time can open up the way of land transportation and will give full play to the advantages of railway transportation. It is conceivable that in the future, the economic and trade, cargo exchanges, personnel movements, cultural exchanges and technical support between countries and cities will surely strengthen the “urban” effect among countries, and the development pattern of “One Belt, One Road” will surely In the mutual help, mutual assistance, and mutual progress, we have established a cooperative system for the common development of all countries in the world. With the complementarity of science and technology and the mutual assistance of resources, the railway will also take a step forward in the development, and finally draw a map of the world railway transportation route.
Now the “Belt and Road” has become a trend. The opening of each international railway line will bring a new round of development opportunities to countries and regions along the route. All industries should adopt this new development concept to meet this new era and join hands. Create a win-win situation. With the cooperation with the South Asian Railway, our railway is constantly “upgrading” and speeding up. We believe that “South Asia International Freight Train” will surely become the “star product” of international shipping on the “One Belt, One Road” strategy, and will also drive common The economic development benefits the people.
