In-depth implementation of the "Chengdu-Europe +" strategy
The Chengdu-European Express Rail, which was opened in 2013, is the most time-efficient, most stable and most competitive railway freight train in China. The central line runs from Chengdu to Lodz, Poland, Nuremberg, Germany, and Tilburg, the Netherlands. It can be delivered to the hinterland of Europe. The southern line runs to Central Asia and Turkey, and the northern line runs to Russia to form a “three-line parallel” pattern.
Open the "Southward Open Grand Passage"
Starting from Chengdu, departure from Yunnan or Guangxi, a multimodal transport corridor will eventually reach the ASEAN countries, and have an effect on South Asia and the Middle East and promote a closer cooperation between Chengdu and other regions of the west and the south.
