China-EU international railway transportation is entering a new stage of stable development

At the Lodz station, the largest railway hub freight station in Poland, the row of Central Europe's iconic blue containers is particularly eye-catching. From the beginning of the week, there was only one train from China, and now it is almost every day. This witnesses the roots of the “One Belt, One Road” international cooperation initiative in Europe.

From the sound of camel ringing to the roar of the train, the ancient Silk Road, which has been silent for centuries, is once again bustling. All of this is the "China Program" that began with the Chinese people's destiny community based on history and reality five years ago.

In 2017, China-Europe railway transport was 3,673 columns, a year-on-year increase of 116%, exceeding the total number of trips from 2011 to 2016. In the first half of this year, 2,490 trains have been opened in the first half of the year, up 69% year-on-year. The proportion of the trains increased steadily; in 2017, the return trains increased by 123% year-on-year, accounting for 53% of the trip. In the first half of 2018, the return trains increased by 100% year-on-year, accounting for 69% of the trip.

The Central European trains are increasingly enriched in cargo categories, from single IT products to clothing, shoes and hats, auto parts, food, wine, coffee beans, wood, furniture, chemicals, small commodities, machinery and equipment. At the same time, it has formed a fixed return source with auto parts, mechanical equipment, daily necessities, food and wood.

The wind and the long should be eye-catching. On the ancient Silk Road, the Central European Bahrain once again closely linked the Eurasian continent to jointly develop a shared, mutually beneficial and win-win path. The rumbling "steel camel team" is like the enthusiasm of China, carrying the vitality and responsibility, and heading forward.
