BEIJING, Jun 22 (FAM) – China said that there was an estimated investment of 800 billion yuan in Chinese rail projects in 2017.

Meanwhile, rail link turns Chengdu into a logistics hub and is becoming a new driving force for economic and trade exchanges between China and European countries, turning the southwest Chinese city into a major logistics hub and a national major city.

Launched in April 2013, the Chengdu-Europe Express Rail is a freight train that passes through Alataw Pass in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region and crosses Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus before arriving in Lodz in Poland. Nuremburg in Germany and the Dutch city of Tilburg have been added to the line.
