On May 11, the country's first "South Asia international freight train" set out in Lanzhou. 10 days later, the freight train loaded with "made in China" will reach Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, through railway and road transportation. This marks Lanzhou's one belt, one road construction, and has launched another important step toward opening to the West and opening to the South after opening the Lanzhou Central Asian and European freight train.
"One belt, one road" has been proposed for more than two years, and the countries along the way have responded. China signed China one belt, one road one belt, one road memorandum of understanding last year, and some major "one belt and one road" framework has begun to build, such as the economic corridor of China, Mongolia and Russia, the economic corridor of China South Central Peninsula, the New Asia Europe Continental Bridge Economic Corridor, China Central Asia West Asia corridor, China Brazil economic corridor, Meng Zhongyin Burmese economic corridor and so on. More than 30 Some have achieved gratifying results. In the past, the freight transportation between China and Europe mainly depended on air, sea and road transportation. The cost of air and road transportation was high and sea transportation took a long time. With the characteristics of short haul distance, fast speed and high safety, as well as the advantages of safety, fast, green and environmental protection and less affected by the natural environment, China Europe Express has become the backbone of land transportation in international logistics.
The prospect of international freight transportation is very broad and has high cost performance. As we all know, in the past, our logistics trade for South and Southeast Asia was mainly completed by sea. The railway freight train opened this time can be described as opening up the way of land transportation and will give full play to the advantages of railway transportation. One belt, one road city, will be able to imagine that the future economic and trade exchanges between cities and cities, the flow of people, cultural exchanges and technical support will surely strengthen the "city" effect among different countries. The development pattern of "one belt and one road" will also establish a cooperative system of common development among all countries in the world of mutual help, mutual help and mutual advance. With the complementarity of science and technology and the mutual assistance of resources, railways will also take steps in development and finally pave a world railway transportation route map.
Now, the "one belt, one road" has become a trend. Every railway line opens up new opportunities for the development of the countries and regions along the line. Every industry should welcome this brand new era with a brand new development mentality and create a win-win situation together. One belt, one road, is also being upgraded. We believe that "South Asia international freight train" will become a "star product" of the "one belt and one way" strategy for international freight transport, and will also stimulate the common economic development and benefit the people.
