The first container train with cargo of Ukrainian companies was sent to China.
Earlier, Ukraine received freight trains from China as part of the international trade project "One Belt - One Road".
The launch of the railway connection with China significantly reduces the period of delivery of goods from China to Europe. And now in the opposite direction. This is generally more efficient than shipping by sea.
Ukraine was one of the first countries to support Chinese President Xi Jinping's One Belt, One Road initiative. Ukraine has a unique geographical location - on the eastern border of the EU, on the way from Asia to Europe, as well as between the Black and Baltic Seas. Ukraine has the necessary economic and industrial potential for fullscale, effective participation in this ambitious project.

Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine, Ukrainian Railways(Ukrzaliznytsia), the State Customs Service of Ukraine for supporting important business initiatives!
