乐动英超会所ing crossborder trade, Urumqi, Xinjiang’s capital, is working to position itself as the brain.

That goal has been brought within reach by a smart, real-time monitoring system th

at consolidates freight information and train timetables for the China Railway Express.乐动英超会所品茶微信

The system is located at the Urumqi International Inland Port Area, a railway con

tainer distribution center of 67 square kilometers near the outskirts of the city.

Pointing to a giant screen showing trains in operation on a digital map, Ma Chunlei, an official with乐动英超会所

the port area authority, was unable to hide his pride in the system, which will be officially rolled out in August.

The map is flanked by charts displaying different types of freight, trade volumes for inbound乐动英超会所品茶微信

and outbound goods, and the number of trains currently passing through the region.

乐动英超会所The highlight of the screen, according to Ma, is that it calculates how many cargo cars are empty

and available for reloading during the each train’s journey across the Eurasian continent.

“For example, we can tell that this train from Duisburg is scheduled to arrive in Urumqi in two days and it has 10 empty cars,” he said, circling the number with a laser pointer.乐动英超会所品茶微信

“The capacity of those 10 freight cars could easily be wasted if we did not have access to such information and could not share it with businesses along the route,” he added.

“Thanks to the smart system, businesses in neighboring Kazakhstan can stockpile goods at designated stations (to be loaded) before the train continues on its journey to China.”

Freight trains on track to drive Xinjiang economy

The China Railway Express service is carrying goods across Eurasia, attracting more custom

乐动英超乌托邦ers and generating profits. Cui Jia and Wang Xiaoyu report from Urumqi and Alashankou, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

Editor’s note: This is the fifth in a series of stories focusing on the Xinjiang Uygur autonomou乐动英超乌托邦乐动英超品茶

s region, looking at developments in the economy, the cultural and business sectors, and poverty alleviation measures.

With the completed customs clearance documents for 80 imported high-end cars in his ha

nd, Zhang Xiafei arrived at the customs office at the land port of Alataw Pass, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.乐动英超乌托邦

Within minutes, a customs officer had logged all the details required for the vehicles to enter the Chinese market via a freight train service that connects Europe and China.

“These Porsche cars left Poland nine days ago. In a few days, they will arrive in Chongqing. The China Railway Express service is very reliable and punctual. More important, it has helped cut transport乐动英超乌托邦乐动英超品茶ation times by half compared with moving the goods by sea,” said Zhang, an employee of Jie’an Logistics, a freight company that has used the service regularly in the past year.

The China Railway Express, aka the China-Europe freight train, is a network of rail services that carry cargo between China and Europe via Central Asia. Nearly 70 percent of the trains use the Alataw Pass, a land port in the Gobi Desert on China’s border with Kazakhstan.

乐动英超乌托邦乐动英超品茶In March 2011, the first such service left the southwestern city of Chongqing headed for Duisburg, Germany. By the end of last month, 5,900 China Railway Express and China-Central Asia trains had used the border crossing.

The rising number of services and their growing popularity has made Northwest China’s largest land port busier than ever.

From January to the end of last month, 851 China Railway Express trains used the Alataw Pass crossing. The value of the freight the乐动英超乌托邦

y carried was $5.2 billion, a rise of 69.6 percent year-on-year, according to the latest figures from the Alataw Pass Customs.

Every day, border security and customs officials deal with large numbers of trains and trucks lined up at checkpoints to be insp乐动英超乌托邦乐动英超品茶

ected, heading to or coming from countries in Europe and Central Asia. Meanwhile, crude oil is constantly pumped to China from Kazakhstan via a network of subterranean pipelines.

Since it opened in 1991, the Alataw Pass land port has been famous for strong winds almost all-year-round and for being a strategic

entry point for energy products. Now, it’s famous for the China Railway Express, and as a trade hub for a range of goods, such as imported cars, agri

cultural products and alcohol,” said Di Yongjiang, Party chief of Alashankou, a city established in 2012 based around the land port.

Wang Chuanjie, head of the Alataw Pass Customs, said: “Since May 2017, the China Railway Express has become a stable and regular service. To provide a bette

r service, we have teamed up with the border security authorities to conduct joint inspections, cutting inspection

times by 30 minutes. The customs clearance time has also been accelerated to ensure the efficiency of the tra

in service. Now, trains only need to stop at the port for six to 10 hours, from 12 hours before.”

South Africa’s business trends and the entrepreneurial landscape require far more sophisticated sk乐动英超千花坊

“We believe that small, medium and micro enterprises and coop

乐动英超千花坊乐动英超品茶In total, more than 70 small, medium and micro enterprises of South Afric

The event’s organizers have launched a series of overseas promotions to showcase the annu

The fair will include special exhibition zones covering countries related to the Belt and Road乐动英超千花坊乐动英超品茶

Initiative, Africa, the Middle East and Europe, as well as China’s Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.

“Since the announcement of the Belt and Road Initiative, Poland has been willing to be a part of it and an im

portant trade and economic partner for China,” said Joanna Skoczek, consul general of Poland in Guangzhou.

Skoczek said the number of Chinese visiting P乐动英超千花坊乐动英超品茶oland in the first quarter of 2017 increased by 85 percent compared with the same period last year. The trade volume between Guangdong and Poland was

nearly $4.2 billion in 2016, increasing 13.3 percent year-on-year and accounting for over one-fifth of the total between China and Poland.

“Chinese businesses are encouraged to visit Poland to strengthen the mutual cooperation in the fields of trading, investment and education,” Skoczek said.

“To solve such problems, we need to improve and consolidate multilateral mechanisms a
