By 2015, the expected increase in the export and transit of container traffic is more than 250 TEUs.
In 1995 Kazakhstan and China signed the agreement on use of the China’s port of Lianyungang for cargo traffic. China’s new leadership pays attention to the evolution of the port of Lianyungang and expansion of container traffic via the transcontinental bridge.
Lianyungang Port, located in Jiangsu Province (East China), has a favorable geographical position. It is connected via rail services with other major Chinese ports, Qingdao, Tyantszyan, Shanghai, and has the sea line with the Korean port of Busan and the Japanese port of Osaka.
