Discover Xinjiang: International Trade Development
Looking back at history, Xinjiang, located on the northwest border of China, has always been crucial to the trade exchanges on the North Road of the ancient Silk Road. It provides a channel for cultural integration and a gateway for business trade.
The region, once served as courier stations for the past one thousand years, now develops into modern land ports, entering a new journey.
The International Land Port of Urumqi is a transportation hub at the core area of the Silk Road Economic Belt.
Up to May 2021, a total of 4,000 China-Europe freight trains have traveled from there since the land port launched its service. At present, there are 21 lines reaching 19 countries, 26 cities.[ Editor: WXY]
