The first “New Silk Road” Yuxinou railway return train from Poland to China kicked off last Thursday, the Chongqing government said. The train transports electronic products, auto parts and steel products to Chongqing.
Starting in Chongqing, the 11,178 km Chongqing-Xinjiang-Europe International Railway passes through Xi’an, Lanzhou, Urumqi , Russia, Belarus and Poland, finally ending in Duisburg, Germany. It takes just 16 days on average to transport goods from China to Europe by rail, much less than via the sea.
“Yuxinou railway is one of the most important cooperation projects to us, especially as the railway will bring great opportunities to our trade with China,” stated Jacek Zuber, chief of the Department of International Cooperation Ministry of Infrastructure and Development of Poland.
